A ripe but suggestive nose of dark cherries, dark chocolate, hot stones, cassis, brambleberry pie and bark. Yet, on the palate, this paints an altogether different picture, in which sleek tannins carry fresh layers of forest fruit long, through a compact, full-bodied palate. Powerful acidity steers it through to a restrained but chewy finish.
At 15 percent alcohol, 2015 comes calling in a big way with ripe fruit and power. Uncharacteristically showy right out of the gate, the style is rich and powerful but still with enough acidity to keep it fresh and balanced. Think black cherries, dark plums and a plethora of brown spicing. It is a fruitful year and a rich wine that should be popular with those who love the more lavish New World style. At only 35 hectolitres per hectare, the yields are low and well-controlled. Luce spends two years in hand-split oak barriques, of which 85 percent are new.
Tasting NotesThe wine greets the eye with a dark ruby, then unfurls a forceful, complex bouquet of remarkable depth, characterized by rich notes of wild blackberry and blackcurrant. Delicate hints of spicy clove and black pepper enliven the background, and subtle impressions of black licorice and balsam gradually make their presence felt as well, creating an aromatic amalgam of enviable richness. The palate opens generous and full-volumed, with ripe tannins that enfold the mouth in their velvety softness, while the near-endless aromatic progression is enhanced by a hint of smokiness through its entire length.

Lamberto Frescobaldi, distinguished for his passion for wine and talent as a winemaker, today has the responsibility of shaping the future of the wine project originally undertaken by the founders of the Luce della Vite estate. His primary mission is the upgrading of the estate’s vineyards and the improvement of the winemaking facilities, plus research projects focusing on numerous experimental vineyards. No one was better equipped than he to bring new energy to the project that was launched in 1995, fruit of the dreams and determination of two leading figures in 20th century winemaking, Lamberto’s father Vittorio Frescobaldi and Robert Mondavi. Today the wine estate is part of the Tenute di Toscana holding company, which in turn is controlled by Marchesi de' Frescobaldi.

Italy's most ancient wine region, Tuscany may not be a heavyweight in terms of quantity, but as the home of two of the country's most famous fine wines – Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino – it certainly holds its own in terms of quality. Tuscany's climate ranges from Mediterranean on the coast to continental deep in the Apennines. More than two thirds of the province is covered with hills, an important terroir factor in its fine wines.

Toscana IGT refers to wines not covered by the various DOC, DOCG or other IGT designations in the region of Tuscany. A producer may wish to label his red, white, rosé or frizzante wine from Tuscany as a Toscana IGT, although this designation does not carry as much weight as a specific DOC or DOCG labeling, as those wines are much more specific as to where the grapes were grown. Thus a Toscana IGT has only a vague meaning, being a wine from Tuscany; it could be quite simple or it could be rather complex.

Most versions are red and are made from Sangiovese; some are unoaked, while many receive oak aging. The principal red variety would be Sangiovese, the region’s most famous and widely planted variety. Wines made from Sangiovese offer red cherry fruit with red floral perfumes, good acidity and moderate tannins; lighter versions, ready to drink upon release, pair well with tomato-based soups and lighter pastas, while the more full-bodied examples work well with roasts, game and aged cheeses.
