Luce della Vite Brunello di Montalcino 2013

RM599.0

Lamberto Frescobaldi, distinguished for his passion for wine and his talented hand as a winemaker, today has the responsibility of shaping the future of the wine project originally undertaken by the founders of the Luce della Vite estate. His primary mission is the upgrading of the estate’s vineyards and the improvement of the winemaking facilities, plus research projects focusing on numerous experimental vineyards. No one was better equipped than he to bring new energy to the project that was launched in 1995, fruit of the dreams and determination of two leading figures in 20th century winemaking, Lamberto’s father Vittorio Frescobaldi and Robert Mondavi.
Of the 88 hectares of vineyards owned by Luce della Vite, 11 are registered in the Albo del Brunello di Montalcino. This is where the Sangiovese for Luce Brunello is born. This wine is our tribute to this excellent wine born in Montalcino in the second half of the 19th Century. It was the first wine in Italy to achieve, in 1980, the Denominazione d’Origine Controllata e Garantita. Today it’s one of the emblems of fine wines made in Italy. Luce Brunello di Montalcino thus continues a journey of the highest quality inspired by this unique territory and the great wines that are born here. This wine spends 36 months in oak barrels and another 3 Years minimum in bottle at the estate before release.

 

This brilliant ruby-red 2013 Brunello introduces itself with a nose distinguished by balsamic notes, Mediterranean scrub, blond tobacco and cocoa followed by notes of ripe black fruit and brandied cherries. In the mouth, the wine expresses elegantly-balanced and explicit tannins supported by stimulating flavor and crispness. The finish is beautifully persistent with sweet tobacco and blackcurrant jam.

Description

Luce della Vite is a visionary winery launcher in 1995 by the Frescobaldi & Mondavi families, with the idea of producing the 1st and best ‘Super-Tuscan’ wine from the Montalcino sub-region of Tuscany, renowned for our world-famous Brunello de Montalcino wines, a classic Italian wine crafted from 100% Sangiovese. The estate was the 1st one to introduce ‘international’ grapes in the region, with a predominant of Merlot, planted on the lower part of the Montalcino hill.

Now fully owned by the Frescobaldi Family but runned as an independent winery, our objective is to produces wines with upmost quality and perfect expression of the local terroirs, with a very soft use of the oak barrels to offer the purest wines possible.

Over the years, Tenuta Luce honoured this vision and became a cradle where exclusive wines are born, wines that earned a widespread, international appreciation among the great wines from Tuscany.
