92 Points, James Suckling - Aromas of blackberries, minerals and fresh herbs. Full body, firm tannins and a savory, juicy aftertaste. Hints of toasted oak. The second wine of Luce. Needs time to soften but delicious already.
Lucente 2012 has a deep purple color. The bouquet is powerful, with aromas of ripe fruit, black cherry, and wild strawberry. Pleasant sweet spices and hints of Mediterranean shrublands bring out the complexity of this wine. The palate is round and velvety with fine tannin texture and enlivened by fresh notes of eucalyptus. The slightly smoky finish makes it a complex wine, powerful and elegant.
75% Merlot, 25% Sangiovese.
