Located in the hills of southwest Montalcino, the original site was identified for its quality by the Marchese Vittorio Frescobaldi in the 1960s, and later launched as partnership between the Marchese and California wine legend Robert Mondavi.

Lucente is the result of a careful selection of the estate’s vineyards that are particularly suited for the production of a fruity and very pleasant wine. Like Luce, it is made from Sangiovese and Merlot, which prevails in the blend.

Lots of blue fruit, graphite and stone aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied with tight and linear tannins and a fresh, vivid finish. Punchy, yet fine, suggesting two to four years of bottle will soften the wine. Rating: 94 Points; James Suckling

Beautiful nose filled with blackcurrant and cherries and a rich milk chocolate note, smells ripe and appealing. Juicy and fully flavoured, a plump mouthfeel with the spicy touches coming through straight away. The liquorice and sweet cedar giving hints of heat and toast on the edges surrounded by blackcurrant and black cherries. Characterful and such a bargain at this price. I love the juiciness with the abundance of fruit - it's so ripe and heady but still succulent and well defined. A fruit bomb with silky exterior. Such a long length too, feels powerful, strong, broad shouldered yet smooth and rippling underneath the muscles. Gorgeous. Rating: 92 Points; Decanter
