It’s the result of a selection of Sangiovese and Merlot grapes capable of producing a wine that stands out thanks to its immediacy and pleasantness, in a contemporary style. It’s the perfect representation of the unique territory where it is produced. The wine matures for 12 months in barriques inside Tenuta Luce’s cellar before bottling.

Harvest period: Merlot 10th of September, Sangiovese 1st of October
Fermentation tank: Temperature-controlled stainless steel vats
Maceration on the skins: 20 days
Malolactic fermentation: In steel vats
Type of container used for aging: Part new, part re-used wooden barriques
Length of ageing: 12 months
Alcohol: 14,5% Vol

The 2018 season was characterized, both in the winter and spring, by higher than normal rainfall, which supported the accumulation of much needed underground water reserves after the drought of the previous year. A damp spring with medium to high temperatures ensured a homogeneous vegetative development to the Sangiovese and Merlot grapes. The additional rains during the flowering phased slowed-down the fruit set, naturally lowering the production load of the plants. The summer season was favoured by an even and regular climate with little rainfall and no overly high temperature, which contributed to rapid veraison of the grapes. The temperature differences between day and night in September, coupled with the northern winds, promoted a magnificent aromatic evolution in the ripening of the grapes. The wine is an intense and bright red color. The nose opens with intense fruity hints of blackberry, plum and currant, enriched by toasted and vanilla nuances. On the palate it is full and enveloping, soft and elegant, with a persistent finish that displays a pleasantly sweet and fruity aftertaste.
