(From 2007 Vintage) A strikingly luminous purple-red greets the eye, with shimmering ruby highlights. The nose is just as impressive, presenting a broad range of elegant aromatic impressions. Smooth, ripe scents of dried plum and blackberry preserves are easily noted, along with more pungent roasted espresso bean and baker's chocolate, and subtle notes of green pepper. The palate is notable for its warmth and roundedness, displaying smooth, glossy tannins, and a well-balanced acidity offers delicious support to a sturdy, firm structure. Intriguing notes of salty mineral on the finish conclude this finely-balanced, harmonious wine.
(From 2011 Vintage) The aromas in this young red show wild, dark fruits of blueberries plus mushroom and fresh herbs. Full body, chewy tannins and loads of plummy character. Secone wine of Luce. Alway delicious. Drink or hold.
