    "Luce" Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

    Intense ruby red. Complex aromas of ripe black fruits and liquorice, rounded off with notes of tobacco and truffle. Soft and fresh on the palate, with an impressive texture. Velvety tannins and an opulent mouthful lead this wine from an excellent vintage to a long and elegant final. A delicious, modern interpretation of Brunello full of personality, brightness and sunshine! SUPERIORE.DE

    "Shiny, rich ruby garnet. Shows notes of plum and blackberry in the nose, very appealing, in the background fresh leather. In the beginning and the course of the wine, it opens with full-bodied tannin, plum, in the final a little bit of high alcohol is noticeable." Falstaff

    "Tasted blind. Quite deep ruby with narrow orange rim. Immediate and concentrated nose with enormous depth as well as richness. Has bags of everything, and quite a bit of new oak but it’s effortlessly matched by the rich fruit. Perfectly balanced with juicy integrated acidity, and elegant, clinging, long tannins. Very imposing and with potential." Jancis Robinson

    "The 2015 vintage registered weather conditions characterised by a crisp and rainy spring that provided the grapevines with the right stimuli and to develop significant water reserves in the subsoil. The excellent temperature ranges in September contributed to the perfect phenolic ripening of the grapes in this warm yet balanced vintage who gave small and sparse clusters. The wine is full of solarity with clear raspberry if not darker wild fruits, with tobacco and roasted nuts aroma and flavors. Firm acidity and grainy, velvety tannins build the full body of the wine with its great suppleness, showing only a bit warming finish." Decanter

    "This is one of the icon bottles within the greater portfolio of Frescobaldi wines from Tuscany. The Luce della Vite 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Luce moves over the palate with power and determination (with 15.5% alcohol), imparting ripe fruit flavors of blackberry and candied cherry along the way. This wine shows deep dimension and fiber with a solid core of dark fruit. It lightens up on the palate thanks to that bright acidity and the general quality of the primary fruit flavors obtained in this happy vintage. The tannins are neatly woven into the wine's full-bodied density." Robert Parker

    "Big and rich, featuring plum, black cherry, leather and earth aromas and flavors. Ripe and fruity, with dense tannins buried in the flesh. A bit monolithic, yet also fresh and long. All the components are in the right proportions. Best from 2023 through 2040." Wine Spectator

    "Amazing aromas of crushed berries, cherries, flowers, black truffles and wet earth, turning to violets and black tea. Extremely aromatic. Full-bodied, deep and profound with fantastically strong tannins that just melt into the wine. Fantastic length and intensity. Truly great. Drinkable, but better in 2024 and onwards." James Suckling
