Wine Spectator ReviewRated 89Lovely 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.

Aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate and roasted coffee. Full-bodied, with velvety, almost chewy tannins and lots of rich fruit that finishes with a vanilla bean and coffee aftertaste. Rich and delicious, but should be better with a few years of bottle age. Sangiovese and Merlot.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Rated 93 Shows aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate and roasted coffee. Full-bodied, with velvety, almost chewy tannins and lots of rich fruit that finishes with a vanilla bean and coffee aftertaste. Rich and delicious, but should be better with a few years of bottle age. Sangiovese and Merlot. Best after 2011. Wine Tasting Notes Luce 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.
