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

Subtle aromas of chocolate, berries and tobacco, with a hint of flowers. Full-bodied and thick, yet refined, with a wonderfully silky texture and a long, succulent, fruity finish. A class red. Best Luce in years. Sangiovese and Merlot. Best after 2004.

By far, the best Luce wersquo;ve tasted, this rsquo;99 blend of merlot and sangiovese benefited from exceptional harvest conditions following a replenishing August rain. The winersquo;s massive power is immediately apparent from the dark garnet color and the potent scent. Then the feel is plump even as the wine remains hard as steel. A monolithic, mouthfilling red, this coats every pore of the tongue and asks for black and earthy foods, like a ragugrave; of duck and porcini mdash; the wine itself tastes like ripe ground, like the sun on rich, freshly turned earth.
