    “Refined tannins and bright acidity”

    “Pure black cherry, blackberry and black currant flavors abound in this rich red, supported by graphite, earth, wild rosemary and anise notes. Balanced and almost approachable now, yet the refined tannins and bright acidity should allow this to develop for decades.”

    “Gorgeously sculpted and nuanced”

    Lighter in colour than the Luce, higher acidity even on the aromatics, gorgeously sculpted and nuanced, with kick and backbone. A savoury edge to the fruit, and strong spices, we are here at almost five years since harvest and you feel the softened tannins with tobacco and olive paste alongside still bright cherry fruits. This is sliding towards being ready to drink, although a few more years will really open things up. Aged in Croatian oak for 24 months.”

    The aromatic bouquet reveals the elegance and complexity through its aromas of cherry liqueur, violet and tobacco, as well as black olives.

    Luce Brunello 2016 is a dense and creamy wine. The radiant acidity wonderfully harmonises with well-rounded and structured tannins, offering a delightfully persistent finish.
