LUCE DELLA VITE

Our history. The beginning.

When Vittorio Frescobaldi – in the early Nineties – met Robert Mondavi, they gave life to a new chapter in the history of the great Tuscan wines, in the history of fine wines.

From that meeting, came Luce. It all started from the desire to make a dream come true: create excellent wines from Tuscany in a particularly suitable terroir, Montalcino.

An ambitious project called Luce della Vite, a tribute to this primary element that gives warmth, energy, and life: in nature, nothing would exist without light.

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.

Sun, warmth, life. This is the story of Luce.

From one generation to the other, the baton was given to Lamberto Frescobaldi, son of Vittorio.

Under his direction, Tenuta Luce della Vite has further strengthened the universe of expertise and knowledge, of discipline respectful of the rhythms of nature, of high quality oenological work thanks to which the fruits of the vines are transformed into excellent wines from Tuscany.

LUCE

It was thanks to the collaboration of the Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi and Robert Mondavi Families that came the idea of matching the roundness and softness of Merlot, whose vineyards were planted in these plots since the 1970s, with the elegance and structure of Sangiovese.

Since 2005, Lamberto Frescobaldi is completely responsible for this project. He continues to write the history of Luce, a Super Tuscan wine appreciated all around the world, directing the production with great passion; from the vineyard to the making of each year’s blends.

-Vintage 2017-

Twenty-five vintages have been released, since Luce found its “home” in Montalcino. Today, as then, the values on which its story is based are the same. It’s on these pillars that we’ve given life, vintage after vintage, to a unique wine.

-Tasting notes: vintage 2017-

The wine displays an intense, almost impenetrable, ruby red color. On the nose, the wine introduces itself with intense red fruits and subtle hints of incense and spicy notes that bequeath extraordinary complexity. In the mouth, the bouquet’s complexity comes alive through elegant tannins that gift the wine with unique balance and structure.
