Notes from the Winemaker:

Lucente 2013 displays a vibrant purple-red color. Its rich, intense bouquet releases black cherry and wild berry, enriched with fascinating notes of pungent spice. The palate is smooth, with fine-grained tannins and an underlying impression of crisp balsam. Overall, this wine is complex, forceful, and elegant.

Vintage Notes:
The growing season was marked by a normal spring, with abundant rain distributed evenly throughout the season, followed by a hot, classically Mediterranean summer. The result was consistent vine development, leading to uniform ripeness across the vineyard blocks, producing sound, healthy grapes with high levels of color and tannins.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - James Suckling:

"A silky and soft-textured red with lots of fruit and tannins. Full-bodied, fresh and bright. Needs a year or two to soften. Excellent. Second wine of Luce." - (August 5th, 2015)

Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A polished red, sporting black cherry, plum, spice and tar flavors. Firm, with cedar and spice details and dusty tannins on the finish. Merlot and Sangiovese. Best from 2017 through 2024. 6,000 cases imported." – BS (Web Only - 2015)
