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 della Vite began in 1995, as a collaborative venture between Marchesi de' Frescobaldi, one of Tuscany's most prestigious fine-wine producers, and Robert Mondavi, world-wide symbol of American wine. The two companies, both major figures in the wine world and similar in culture and style, shared with each other their wealth of experience. They joined forces with the common goal of creating and offering to the international marketplace unique Tuscan wines of great distinction, from exceptional growing areas and vineyards In 2005 Marchesi de' Frescobaldi purchased all of Robert Mondavi Luce della Vite shares, which subsequently went to Mondavi Investment Partner LLC, the limited partnership begun by Robert Mondavi's son Michael. The current company structure, in which the Michael Mondavi family holds a financial interest, thus re-unites the two great wine families and ensures the future of the Luce della Vite project. A great future is assured...

Sweet ripe fruit with complementing vanilla oak, a complex and intense wine with supple tannins. Located in the viticultural zone of Montalcino, southwest of this medieval town, the Luce della Vite estate comprises 192 hectares, with approximately 55 under vine. Originally a joint venture between Vittorio Frescobaldi and Robert Mondavi, today the wine estate is part of the Tenute di Toscana holding company, which in turn is controlled by Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi. Lamberto Frescobaldi now has the responsibility of shaping the future of the wine project originally undertaken by the founders. Grapes : 75% Merlot, 25% Sangiovese Region : Italy / Tuscany / Toscana IGT Maker : Nicolò D'Afflitto Notes : Complex and intense wine with supple tannins. Sweet ripe fruit with complementing vanilla oak made in an international style. Serve : Roast meats, hearty stews and casseroles ABV : 14.50% Suitable for Vegetarians

A rich, firmly structured red, whose black cherry, plum and chocolate flavors are shrouded in burly tannins. A bit heavy-handed, with an astringent, chewy finish. Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2014 through 2019. -BS Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2009 Luce La Vite Lucente 750ml

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.
