- Luce Brunello di Montalcino 2007:
The appearance is a very intense ruby red. Rich aromas of blueberry, currant, blackberry, and sour cherry mingle nicely with a hint of violet and spicier notes of cardamom, star anise, tobacco, and liquorice. Impressions of coffee, cocoa, and minerals complete the bouquet. The entry on the palate is lavish with elegantly integrated tannins. The wine is full bodied, well structured, and reveals decisive characteristics of the Montalcino region. The finish is lengthy and pleasingly intense.
- Luce Toscana IGT 2008
uce 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.
Luce Brunello di Montalcino 2007
"Aromas of dark fruits, with plums and lemon rind follow through to a full body with lots of juicy fruit and velvety tannins. Tannin quality is impressive. Hints of cocoa and spices. Intense finish. Try after 2014."
Luce Toscana 2008
"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."
