Winemaker’s Notes
Luce was the first wine from Montalcino made by blending Sangiovese and Merlot grapes.

It was thanks to the collaboration of the Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi and Robert Mondavi Families that came the idea of matching the roundness and softness of Merlot, whose vineyards were planted in these plots since the 1970s, with the elegance and structure of Sangiovese.

Since 2005, Lamberto Frescobaldi is completely responsible for this project. He continues to write the history of Luce, a Super Tuscan wine appreciated all around the world, directing the production with great passion, from the vineyard to the making of each year’s blends.

    “Dark-berry, walnut, cedar and violet aromas with just a hint of chocolate. Full-bodied, layered and rich with ripe tannins and a vivid finish. Shows energy and a velvety texture. Deep and long.”

    “Very focused and classy on the nose with blackberries, currants, mushrooms and dark bark. It’s full-bodied with a tight palate of chewy tannins that give structure and form to the wine. Beautiful center palate of dark fruit and mushrooms. Subtle and strong.” -Tuscany, Italy –
