Luce Della Vite Toscana Lucente 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Undurchdringliches Purpurrot. Schwarzer Holunder und Heidelbeergelee im gehobenen Bouquet, Brownies und ein Hauch Tabak. Wiederum schwarzbeerig im Gaumen, nun auch eine feine Lakritzenote, gekonnt integrierte Röstaromen, ein Hauch Wacholder; sanftes Tanninbild, sehr kompakt und dicht im Abgang. Ein moderner Toskanese!

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

The nose opens with aromas of red-skinned fruits, deep red cherry, wild strawberries, black pepper and milk chocolate; followed by pure nuances of licorice and mineral notes of graphite that are also found in Luce. The palate is warm, rounded and flavorful, with elegant and silky tannins supported by an important alcohol component. The finish is long, characterized by predominantly fruity notes. A wine with a contemporary and elegant profile.

The aromas in this young red show wild dark fruits of blueberries plus mushroom and fresh herbs. Full body chewy tannins and loads of plummy character. Second wine of Luce. Always delicious. Drink or hold. James Suckling.
