Tenuta Luce La Vite Lucente 1999

Tuscany, ItalyBig spicy cherry peppery almost Bordelais nose with streaks of cardamom throughout. Very smooth elegant entry with dried cherry and vanilla fruit and spicy cola in the finish. New World overtones undercut by Tuscan acidity and still some tannins to shed. Good effort. You sense both Tim Mondavi and Lamberto Frescobaldi have stop circling each other in the winery and begun to mesh their obvious talent. Better fruit is helping too.Tasted: 01 March 2002Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices:
