In 2013, seasonal conditions were particularly favourable to the grapevines’ biological cycles. A cool spring with regular rain was followed by a hot summer devoid of excessively high temperature peaks. Autumn began with good range of temperatures between night and day, which resulted in healthy, well-ripened grapes rich in polyphenolic substances.
When poured in a glass, Luce 2013 immediately manifests its extraordinary richness with an intense and impenetrable colour coupled with an elegant and complex bouquet. To the nose, aromas are vibrant and vary from red berries, such as cherries and raspberries, to spiced notes enriched by delicate fl oral undertones. To the palate, the wine distinguishes itself for balance and freshness, persisting aromas, and refi ned and silky tannins that bestow great structure free from any sharpness.
