Winemaker’s Notes
The wine’s complex nose of ripe fruit features dominant cherry and plum aromas introduced by spicy highlights of vanilla and ginger bread that pave the way for softer notes of cinnamon and cloves. To the palate, the wine is genuine and structured. The tannins are present but elegant and not aggressive, providing a broad and dense frame to the wine. The wine is pleasant with a sustained finish dominated by a wonderful crispness.

First in Montalcino to blend Sangiovese and Merlot, this partnership between the Frescobaldi and Mondavi families is powerful and elegant. Enticing berry and black cherry aromas and flavors are enhanced by delicate notes of spice and toasty oak.

Notes
Luce is the result of a project launched in the early 1990s and lead by Frescobaldi and Robert Mondavi. Since 2004 vintage, the direction of Luce was entrusted solely to Lamberto Frescobaldi.

 

  • 97 James Suckling

    A ripe and juicy super Tuscan with lots of aromas of ripe berries, chocolate, nutmeg and spices, which follow through to a full body. Round, silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Rich and layered with beautiful fruit and intensity. Subtlety lavish. Drink or hold.

  • 93 Wine Enthusiast

    Made with Sangiovese and Merlot, this vibrant red offers aromas of fragrant blue flower, dark-skinned berry, cedar and underbrush. The elegant juicy palate delivers fleshy black cherry, raspberry jam, espresso and licorice alongside fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. Drink 2020–2028.

  • 92 Wine Spectator

    A powerful version, with a coating of toasty, vanilla-accented oak wrapped around blackberry and black plum flavors. Shows a hint of tar, and the tannins are assertive now, yet this stays vibrant and long. Better with air, but still a unique style. Sangiovese and Merlot. Best from 2021 through 2033.
