    Winemaker's Notes:

    Luce 2008 appears a very dense, concentrated purple-red. The nose exhibits remarkable finesse, releasing notes of wild blackberry and sour cherry, backgrounded by peppery eucalyptus and minerally impressions of pencil lead. Capping the aromatic array are appealing notes of baker's chocolate and tobacco leaf. The wine shows a superb attack, with the densest of tannic suites. The palate expands impressively, with a tasty vein of acidity that beautifully knits together all of its constituents. A near-endless finish adds the final harmonious touch.

    Blend: 45% Sangiovese and 55% Merlot

    Critical Acclaim:

    Aromas of dark berries, currants, toasted oak and chocolate. Full and velvety, with soft and silky tannins and a long delicious finish. I really appreciate the balance to this.
