About this video
Marchese Lamberto Frescobaldi spoke with Wine With Wanda journalist Wanda Mann about the 25th anniversary of Tenuta Luce. The two discussed the significance of this estate as well as its history, winemaking philosophy and the current vintages on during an Instagram Live Session.
During their chat, the pair sipped the two of the recent releases, Tenuta Luce “Luce” 2017, which was later reviewed as phenomenal, “Appearing a deep ruby, on the nose it offers intense scents of ripe berry fruit and dark-fleshed fruit. […] Its dense, velvety tannins contribute to the wine’s magnificent structure, while the palate, remarkably full-bodied, progresses into a notably lengthy finish.” Secondly, the Tenuta Luce Brunello di Montalcino 2015 received more high praise, “vaunts a vibrant acidity and spice-laden structure, while silky tannins gradually unfold on the palate, revealing an elegance and multi-layered complexity that drive to a lengthy, intense conclusion.”

Luce is a singular and irresistible expression of Montalcino, a Super Tuscan with an exotic side, and above all full of pleasure. The spectacular estate's diversity of soils, expositions and biodiversity of olive groves and forests come together in a wine as vibrant and exciting as the landscape.
Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
Luce Brunello is the estate's tribute to one of Italy's crowning jewels of wine production. Of the 217 acres of vineyards at Luce, 27 are are officially listed in the Register for Brunello di Montalcino DOCG. It is an exquisitely balanced wine, gentle and yet powerful, and is produced in very small quantities to showcase the unique character of a pure Sangiovese from the estate and to pay tribute to the tradition of winemaking excellence in Montalcino.
Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
Today, Luce goes so much further than was originally envisioned when started as a project over 20 years ago. The estate now has some of the most exceptional vineyards in Montalcino and, as of 2018, a state of the art winery to nurture every step of the winemaking process. The original vision, however, remains the same: to produce a bold and ambitious Super Tuscan that reflects the culture of Montalcino.
