Marchesi de' Frescobaldi Luce della Vite Toscana Sangiovese Merlot 2013

$99.99

95 Point Wine Spectator:  "Polished and complex, featuring ripe black cherry, plum, mint, vanilla, chocolate, leather and tobacco aromas and flavors. Dense and tannic, with concentrated sweet fruit for balance. Finishes long and harmonious. Merlot and Sangiovese. Best from 2017 through 2035." 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.

A really great super Tuscan. Spice and a bit of menthol on the nose, just beautiful. Medium body. Very well balanced. Just delish. Happy to have a couple more 13s.

This is either a Super Tuscan or a Merlot/Sangiovese blend. Hard to tell! You get obviously dry red Italian with stems and spice, combined with soft ripe fruit, and a medium+ oak influence.

Outperformed it’s price. This is better than anything in its class... it rivals wine three times the price. Slight bell pepper. Vanilla. And a bit of leather. I’m so many drinks deep I may be off my rocker.
