Tenuta Luce La Vite Lucente 2018

Tuscany, ItalyLucente is the second wine at Luce, but it’s hardly a second wine. It is also a merlot/sangiovese blend that is stainless steel fermented and aged 12 months in a mix of new and aged French oak barrels. 2018 is an expressive, pure-fruited wine with a bright future. Blackberries and plums line the palate with a light vanilla toasted oak finish. The organically grown fruit is perfectly right, the textures smooth, and finish long and persistent. This label has come a long way over the years. Try this with a grilled steak.Tasted: 17 November 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 35.99 BCLS AB 34.99 select private retailers MB 40.99 Manitoba Liquor Mart ON 34.95 LCBO QC 34.10 SAQ NB 39.99 1500 NBLiquor NS 34.95 NSLC Producer: Tenuta LuceDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
