Tenuta Luce Lucente Red Blend 2021


The Frescobaldi family has an incredibly rich history in Tuscany dating back to medieval Florence. For the last 700 years, they’ve been growing wine in Tuscany. Slowly and carefully, they have purchased estates, giving them access to all sorts of terroir throughout some of the most prime locations in all of Tuscany.

With properties along the hills of Montalcino, throughout Nipozzano to the hidden gem of Castello Pomino, all the way up to Tenuta Ammiraglia by the sea, and Tenuta Perano in the heart of Chianti Classico, the wines made here all tell profoundly different stories.

The history of Tenuta Luce started back in the 1990s when Vittorio Frescobaldi and Robert Mondavi chose Montalcino to start a new, visionary project: to make a wine that would go beyond the borders of tradition. Little did they know they were out in front of a trend that would soon shape Tuscan wine for decades to come.

Today, the winery goes so much further than the two winemaking greats could’ve ever dreamed when they started all those years ago. The estate now has some of the most exceptional vineyards in Montalcino and, as of 2018, a state of the art winery to nurture every step of the winemaking process.

In stock

94 Points, James Suckling
Rich cherries, cassis, fresh olives and dark spices. Svelte, fine tannins on the medium- to full-bodied palate, showing lots of juicy berries and a linear, extensive finish. Excellent length, focus and structure here.
