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
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.
