A muscular Super Tuscan rich and robust with dark berry, cedar spice, earthy, nutty and zesty on the palate with a lingering dark cocoa finish and textured tannins. Good now, better in 2022.

Reviews and Ratings

Luce della Vite Luce 2017 is a full-bodied, muscular Sangiovese and Merlot red wine blend intense with spicy, smoky, blackberry, wild cherry and plum compote flavours, beautifully balanced finishing long on the palate. Tannins are structured and fine. Luce 2017 was fermented in concrete tank, aged in 85% in new French oak barrels and 15% previous use barrels. Good now, better in 2022. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
