Food Pairings for Luce Della Vite Toscana IGT
I have vintages back to 1999, I love this full body wine. By far one of my favorite Super Tuscan blends. Frescobaldi is a wonder producer and all of their wines are to be tried. Like velvet, this wine is one to hold onto and enjoy for a special occasion.
External Reviews for Luce Della Vite Toscana IGT
Wine Spectator ReviewRated 91This is balanced and refined, with licorice, lavender and hints of ripe fruit. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a balanced, silky-textured finish. Merlot and Sangiovese. Best after 2008.Wine Tasting NotesLuce appears deep ruby with lovely purple highlights. Subtle suggestions of toasty oak appear first on the nose, over fragrant notes of blueberry and blackberry that seem to infuse the background; next to emerge is a complex of floral and mint nuances, followed by smooth impressions of vanilla and cinnamon. The palate is smooth and mouth-filling, with velvety tannins and a warm alcohol beautifully complemented by a crisp acidity. The finish is expansive and dynamic. 60% Merlot and 40% Sangiovese.
