Marchesi de' Frescobaldi Luce della Vite Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2010

$139.99

100 Points James Suckling:  "Very powerful aromas of blackberry, fresh mushroom, iron, spice and lightly grilled meat. Full body with layers of fruit and earth character. Decadent and intense. It's a phenomenal wine. Incredibly layered and muscular. Better than the legendary 2006? Built for aging." Luce was the first wine created in Montalcino by blending Sangiovese and Merlot. Combining the roundedness and softness of Merlot with the structure and elegance of Sangiovese might seem a rather obvious idea, and yet it took the insight and collaboration of the Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi and Robert Mondavi Families to launch this innovative project in the land of the world renown Brunello di Montalcino, a wine made strictly from Sangiovese.

Big fruit. Big oak. Big tannin. This wine is undoubtedly in the modern camp---from the deep, extracted color to the chocolaty-spicy oak---but is unquestionably delicious all the same.

We had this on 11/21/17. Dark purple in color. Lavender, earth and dark fruit on the bouquet. Dark fruit, graphite and lavender on the palate. We had to run it thru the aerator. That smoothed out the tannins. Smooth, long finish to this full bodied wine.

Big but maybe a little on the 'end' of life. Could be that it wasn't stored properly. Hope the next second one is better. Still a great and big wine!

Great wine, sweet notes on the nose. Light body with colorful taste. Hints of dark cherry, low tannins.
