Region: Tuscany
Grape Variety: 100% Sangiovese
Alcohol Percentage: 14.5%
Ratings: 93 James Suckling Points (2016)

Climate: A damp spring with medium to high temperatures ensured a homogeneous vegetative development to the Sangiovese and Merlot grapes. The additional rains during the flowering phased slowed-down the fruit set, naturally lowering the production load of the plants. The summer season was favoured by an even and regular climate with little rainfall and no overly high temperature, which contributed to rapid veraison of the grapes. The temperature differences between day and night in September, coupled with the northern winds, promoted a magnificent aromatic evolution in the ripening of the grapes.
Terroir: Lying on the gentle slopes to the south-west of the village of Montalcino in Tuscany, the Tenuta Luce vineyards cover an area rich in biodiversity, one of the most suitable for the growing of grapes. Each vineyard parcel has different characteristics and the altitudes range from 200 to 430 meters above sea level. The land here varies greatly in terms of soils, attributable to three main areas: mixed-clayey in the lower, sandy-schistose in the upper, yellow sands and sandstones in the middle.
Ageing: Temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel vats. 20 days maceration on the skins. Malolactic fermentation in steel vats. Aged for 12 months in part new, part re-used wooden barriques

Color: Bright red
Nose: Opens with intense fruity hints of blackberry, plum and currant, enriched by toasted and vanilla nuances
Palate: Full and enveloping with a persistent finish that displays a pleasantly sweet and fruity aftertaste
