Luce della Vite – Brunello di Montalcino

R2,095.00

Of the 88 hectares of vineyards owned by Luce della Vite, 11 are registered in the Albo del Brunello di Montalcino.
This is where the Sangiovese for Luce Brunello is born. This wine is our tribute to this excellent wine born in Montalcino in the second half of the 19th Century. It was the first wine in Italy to achieve, in 1980, the Denominazione d’Origine Controllata e Garantita. Today it’s one of the emblems of fine wines made in Italy. Luce Brunello di Montalcino thus continues a journey of the highest quality inspired by this unique territory and the great wines that are born here.
Very powerful aromas of blackberry, fresh mushroom, iron, spice and lightly grilled meat. Full body with layers of fruit and earth character. Velvety tannins. Decadent and intense. 95-100 points JS
