Product Description

Luce 2011

During the month of August two verifi ed climatic events of extraordinary
importance took place which shaped the characteristics of the grapes
by force of the natural elements. The fi rst half of August was characterized
by sunny days, with daytime temperatures never above 30°C, and very
cold nights. In the second part of August the strength of the sun gave
power and concentration to the red grapes. The fi nal result is that we
have obtained red grapes of extraordinary health, mature, concentrated
and rich in polyphenols.
A deep, concentrated ruby red. The nose boasts an impressive complex
of aromas, opening immediately with intense notes of fresh berryfruit,
particularly blackcurrant and raspberry, followed by a hint of smooth
vanilla hovering in the background. The palate offers an ultra-appealing
crispness complementing its fl avours of ripe fruit, dried fl owers, and
spices edged in smoke. Dense-packed, velvet-textured tannins contribute
to an impressive structure that gives the wine its solid backbone.
A near-endless fi nish provides a seductive vein of tangy mineral and spice,
completing a wine that showcases a marriage of crispness and power.
