Luce Della Vite Toscana Lucente 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Kräftiges Rubinrot, etwas aufgehellter Rand. Brombeerkonfitüre und schwarze Pflaumen in der gehaltvollen Nase, Zartbitterschokolade sowie gerösteter Kaffee dahinter. Kraftvoll der Gaumen, wiederum viel schwarzbeerige Frucht und Mokkanoten, harmonische Frucht-Säure-Balance; von feinstem Vanille begleiteter, lange anhaltender Abgang.

Luce:
It is a radiant sun, with its corona of twelve flaming rays. Anyone who strolls through the cities of central Italy will have admired it carved into the keystone of an arch, wrought into the decorative iron of a gate, or pressed into a ceramic tile-not to mention on the high altar of Florence's Santo Spirito church, built by Brunelleschi on a piece of property donated by the Frescobaldi family....

It is a radiant sun, with its corona of twelve flaming rays. Anyone who strolls through the cities of central Italy will have admired it carved into the keystone of an arch, wrought into the decorative iron of a gate, or pressed into a ceramic tile-not to mention on the high altar of Florence's Santo Spirito church, built by Brunelleschi on a piece of property donated by the Frescobaldi family. This sun represents the Divine Light, light for mankind. It is a light that gives warmth, that nourishes growing things, and crafts the sinew within wine. Simply pronouncing its name conjures up the power of Sangiovese and of Merlot, which together give birth to Luce, in the generous earth of Montalcino. Read less

Lovely aromas of blackberry, milk chocolate and vanilla follow through to a full body, with silky tannins, bright acidity and a lively finish. Better with a little bottle age. Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2008.

WS 91pts. - Tasting Notes - A strikingly luminous purple-red greets the eye, with shimmering ruby highlights. The nose is just as impressive, presenting a broad range of elegant aromatic impressions. Smooth, ripe scents of dried plum and blackberry preserves are easily noted, along with more pungent roasted espresso bean and baker s chocolate, and subtle notes of green pepper. The palate is notable for its warmth and roundedness, displaying smooth, glossy tannins, and a well-balanced acidity offers delicious support to a sturdy, firm structure. Intriguing notes of salty mineral on the finish conclude this finely-balanced, harmonious wine.
