    Lucente is the second wine to Lamberto Frescobaldi's Luce, the acclaimed blend of Sangiovese and Merlot produced at the family's Montalcino estate. It represents a more modern interpretation of Tuscan reds with vibrant dark and wild berry fruits and plenty of tasty French oak to round it out. Open this now or give it some time in the cellar.

    The nose is full of bold fruit; wave after wave of black cherry, blackberry very dark fruited. On the palate the wine is supple, fleshy and rolls across your palate full of an almost cassis like flavor. The richness gradually subsides as the structure begins to slowly emerge and shows lengthening balance. The finish is full of bold fruit and hints of earth. The wine seems to step between two worlds, enough forward fruit and richness to seem New World but with traces of the Old World structure. Real value wine for this price point!

    Super-Tuscan is right! This super big wine starts with juicy dark fruits and leads into some great dry spice. Round tannins on the finish. This wine could benefit from some time, but would be great to enjoy with your grilled dinner this summer!

    This is one of my favorite producers from Tuscany. This is their "Super Tuscan" - a very user friendly wine, the blend is Merlot and Sangiovese. Lots of dark skinned fruit with spice, minerals that complete each other on the nose and palate. The wine has pleasantly soft tannins, but good acidity to pull it all together. $20 bucks WooHoo !!!
