Why We're Buying
Super Tuscans represent the pinnacle of Italian winemaking, and Tenuta Luce is no exception. The concentrated yet graceful red blend offers an affordable entry point into Super Tuscans for up-and-coming investors.
This is clearly the greatest Luce ever. A wine with currants and blueberries with hints of flowers and spices. A full bodied red with with lots of chocolate, berry and vanilla character. Chewy. Juicy. Better in 2015 to soften and come together. Fabulous blend of 45% sangiovese and 55% merlot.
The floral, violet, black cherry, earth and spice aromas and flavors are very pure here. Focused and elegant, yet forceful, balanced and long, this shows a touch of mint in the aftertaste.
