As Luce della Vite, Tenuta Luce was founded in the early 1990s as a collaboration between Robert Mondavi and Marchesi de' Frescobaldi. Ownership passed entirely to Lamberto Frescobaldi in 2002. The estate is one of the highest situated wineries in Montalcino with 350 to 420 meters of altitude, located southwest of Montalcino town, and has 77 hectares (190 acres) of estate vineyards in total. At the core of Tenuta Luce’s philosophy is the idea that wine should be the most natural expression of the lands where it is produced and the grapes from which it is obtained: the result of a perfect balance between grape variety and territory. Each human intervention takes place in a minimal and non-invasive form, with the main objective of protecting this harmony.
Lucente impresses for the cleanliness and intensity of its wild berry and jam bouquet with highlights of tobacco and light spices which are found again on the palate, enriched by a delicate toasted note. Measured, silky tannins provide a wonderful roundness and a persistent finish.
