    Winemaker's Notes:

    Lucente 2010 impresses with a dark-toned yet shimmering purple-red. A lush, seductive bouquet offers silky impressions of raspberry and blackberry, both fresh-picked and preserves, followed by roast espresso, white chocolate, and pungent hints of mint and sage. Warm and well-rounded in the mouth, it boasts supple, glossy tannins that are perfectly integrated into the structure, and in alcohol appropriate to a noble wine. A near-endless finale conveys tasty fruit, finishing with a pleasant hint of nutmet. Lucente 2010 is an elegant wine in a thoroughly contemporary key.

    Blend: 75% Merlot, 25% Sangiovese

    Critical Acclaim:

    Fascinating aromas of ripe berries and hints of coconut and vanilla bean follow through to a full body, with super silky tannins and a long and intense finish. Lots going on here. Excellent value. Needs at another year or two to come together. But so excellent now.

    Absolutely killer Super Tuscan at this price point. Drinkable now (2013) but would also keep.

    Made in a modern style compared to many Italian wines, with pleasant aromas of sweet black cherries, ripe blackberries, pencil shavings, graphite, spices. At $20 a terrific value
