Tenuta Luce / 2016 Lucente

COUNTRY/REGION: Italy/Tuscany.

GRAPES: Marlot and Sangiovese.

ABV: 13.8%

In 2016, spring was characterised by numerous rain showers and a mild climate that encouraged an earlier start to the budding phase for Merlot and Sangiovese grapes, which took place between the end of March and beginning of April. Although summer was quite dry in general, Montalcino experienced three significant rain events with precipitation over 15mm in August - one at the beginning, one in the middle, and one at the end of the month. Temperatures during this period were not excessively high, limiting stress related to lack of water and supporting a gradual and complete maturation of the grapes.

The wine’s introduction is juicy and rich. Gifted with great complexity the wine exhibits delicate notes reminiscent of the Mediterranean brush supported by a well-balanced and flavourful structure. In the mouth the wine is open and generous with a predominant impression of tense freshness completed by a silky and precise tannic structure. Lucente’s finish is soft and persistent and characterised by a pleasant crispness.
