Luce Brunello 2011
The 2011 growing season followed its regular course of alternating days of sun and rain marked by the mild temperatures that the Mediterranean spring is known for. The early summer’s warm and pleasant climate allowed the vines and grapes to reach the veraison in optimal conditions. The second part of August saw a distinct rise in temperatures, which is what Sangiovese grapes need for an extraordinary ripening distinguished by high concentration and excellent health.
Appearing a deep and intense colour with light garnet hues, Luce Brunello 2011 offers a complex bouquet, rich in notes that go from small black fruits and spices, to tobacco and tea leaves. On the palate, the wine confirms the same aromatic complexity: a soft and enveloping start is balanced by an excellent tannic texture that gives the wine a long and persistent presence.
