LUCE DELLA VITE 'Lucente' 2014

The 2014 ‘Lucente’ is a complete success in this difficult vintage. An outstanding blend of Merlot and Sangiovese, which was aged 12 months in 55% new French oak, 5% new American oak and 40 % French oak. It opens to attractive aromas of ripe blackberries and dark cherries woven together with spices, coffee grounds, graphite and toasted notes, all soaring from the glass. On the palate this is full-bodied with a velvety texture supported by gorgeous soft, polished polished tannins. This continues to impress with its excellent balance, structured and plush finish which leaves behind dark fruits and spices. Overall, this is a sensational effort and as well remarkable value which is accessible now. (Best 2017-2023) - April, 2017 (JD)
