Luce's younger brother, Lucente is made in approachable fashion that is ready to drink now. Fermented and aged in stainless steel and neutral barriques, the wine is fresh and vibrant. Aromas of wild berry and jam open on the nose, with a touch of spice. Fruit flavors follow on the palate, with a hint of tobacco. Silky tannins guide you to a lengthy, opulent finish.
A very ripe and decadent Lucente that delivers barbecued meat, dried blackberries, vanilla and fruit cake. Full-bodied and expansive on the palate, but not as enormous as the nose might suggest. Surprisingly firm tannins rein in this powerful wine on the finish.
