A blend of 50% Merlot, 35% Sangiovese and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.
A deep but luminous purple-red introduces 2006 Lucente. Measured elegance marks the nose, which first releases subtle notes of vanilla that slowly yield to ripe, dark fruit, particularly dried plum and liqueur blackcurrants, composing an appealing, velvet-smooth bouquet notable for its multi-layered depth. It expands impressively on the palate, with a steady progression supported by dense, supple tannins, through
to a superb, aromatic finish. Overall, a crisp, refined, beautifully-balanced wine.
