95 Point James Suckling :Blackberry, floral and dark chocolate aromas follow through to a full body, with a berry, nutty and mushroom character. Chewy and structured. One of the wines of the vintage. Better in 2014.

92 Points Wine Enthusiast :Luce della Vite opens with an inky dark appearance and added extraction that is hard to find otherwise in 2008 Brunello. Soft aromas of cherry and blackberry are followed by supple fragrances of leather and spice. There is fruit pulp in the mouth and the wine’s extra richness really helps to balance out its acidity and those still-young tannins.

Notes on the Luce Brunello di Montalcino 750ML 2008

Wine Maker Notes The spring of 2008 will be remembered as the most rainy in the last 10 years, with average temperatures well below normal. Nevertheless, the intense luminosity and warm temperatures in July and August allowed for a partial recuperation from the late onset of the vegetative period. The summer months, September included, were hot and sunny, and because there were no problems related tolack of rain favoured an excellent rate of maturity for all grape varieties, Sangiovese most of all. The mild, sunny climate continued during the course of the various harvest phases, and the absence of significant precipitation permitted a regularity to the cellar work. Ruby red colour. Intense and elegant bouquet with mellow scents of berry fruits like blueberry, joined by floral notes of violet. A lovely spiciness follows with black pepper and star anise, balsamic notes as eucalyptus and mineral notes of flint.The palate reveals a notably substantial body accompanied by a long and harmonious aromatic persistence and a fine and elegant tannin texture.

Technical Notes Lamberto Frescobaldi, distinguished for his passion for wine and his talented hand 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.
