Description

As the best French (indeed, Bordeaux) tradition hands down the use of producing the so-called “second vin” by the most important wineries, those whose wines are in the history of enology, Tenuta Luce of Marchesi Frescobaldi also aligns with this tradition proposing Lucente, the younger brother of Luce, a blend of Sangiovese and Merlot able to express immediately and in a very pleasant way that contemporary style that many look for in a red wine on certain occasions.

The style is confirmed to be the one of Tenuta Luce: although it is a “second vin”, this is not noticed either with reference to the practices in the vineyard, always well organized and rigorous in the best Frescobaldi style nor in the cellar, where fermentation in stainless steel thermo-conditioned tanks with a maceration on the skins for three weeks is followed by aging in partly new and partly used barriques for twelve months.

The 2018 vintage is considered to be of high quality: although characterized by above-average rainfall in winter and a humid spring with rainfalls during the key phases of vegetative development, the summer has been regular, progressively providing more and more excursion between day and night and allowing to reach harvest (respectively on 10th September for Merlot and 1st October for Sangiovese) with healthy grapes and a relevant aromatic outfit.

In tasting Lucente 2018 presents itself with an intense and crystalline ruby ​​color, introducing an olfactory bouquet that eyes the fresh forest fruit (currant, blackberry) but also to prune and red plum, to roasting nuances such as vanilla and tobacco and with slight earthy notes. On the palate it is direct, full and enveloping, with soft and elegant tannins flanked by a pleasant freshness and veiled minerality, before a long closure with a fruity return.

Lucente confirms Frescobaldi’s ability to draw the best from the territory (in this case the beautiful and uncontaminated area west of Montalcino) to offer an elegant and seductive wine, capable of adapting well to many situations, offered by Winefully in the most exclusive Magnum format.
