In 1995, Robert Mondavi of California and Vittorio Frescobaldi of Tuscany joined hands to create an Italian wine of extraordinary quality. Their partnership was the first of its kind in Italy, and their premier offering was Luce della Vite. The name means light of the vine in Italian and was inspired by the morning sunlight on the way from Florence to the renowned winemaking region of Montalcino.
Lucente is Luce’s second wine. It’s the result of a selection of Sangiovese and Merlot grapes capable of producing a wine that stands out thanks to its immediacy and pleasantness, in a contemporary style. It’s the perfect representation of the unique territory where it is produced. The wine matures for 12 months in barriques inside Tenuta Luce’s cellar before bottling.
The wine is a deep, brilliant color with purplish highlights.
Lucente impresses for the cleanliness and intensity of its wild berry and jam bouquet with highlights of tobacco and light spices.
They are found again on the palate, enriched by a delicate toasted note.
Measured, silky tannins provide a wonderful roundness and a persistent finish.
