Luce Della Vite Lucente 2015
|Brand||Luce Della Vite|
James SucklingThis has delicious undertones of sage and thyme that highlight ripe yet refined notes of strawberries, red cherries and darker blackcurrants. Full body, a dense, generous texture and a polished finish. Needs time. Drink in 2019.
Jeb DunnuckThe Merlot/Sangiovese 2015 Lucente sports a deep purple/ruby color as well as terrific notes of blackberry and plum fruits supported by plenty of smoked earth, toasty oak, and licorice. The second wine of the estate from younger vines and brought up in new and used barrels, it’s a medium-bodied, supple, elegant red that has some chalky minerality, light tannin, and a great finish.
