Winery Notes: A rich purple-red introduces Lucente, flecked with luminous ruby highlights. The nose opens to a generous array of aromas, prominent among them fruity notes of wild cherry, dried plum, and blackberry preserves, lifted by toasty nuances of cocoa powder and black liquorice. The palate immediately impresses with its warmth and silky fabric, and with dense, fine-grained tannins, already well integrated. A superb structure, good alcohol, and crisp vein of acidity beautifully balance each other, and a long-lingering finish completes the overall harmony.

The 2008 (La Vite) Lucente is a gorgeous wine laced with dark fruit, spices, mocha, licorice and new leather. This shows terrific minerality, freshness and verve, along with a round harmonious finish, all worth noting in the challenging 2008 harvest. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018. [90 Points]



Dense and dark, showing ripe, fresh, jammy blackberry flavor. The tannins are the lasting impression, and this improves with aeration. Merlot, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2013 through 2018. 5,000 cases imported. –BS [89 Points]
