Marchesi de Frescobaldi Luce della Vite Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2013Marchesi de Frescobaldi
ORIGIN: Italy (Tuscany)
GRAPE VARIETAL: 100% Sangiovese.
ROBERT PARKER: 94
Luce Brunello is the winery’s tribute to Montalcino and the wine that emerged there in the second half of the 19th century to become one of Italy’s crowning jewels in wine production. It is produced in a very small quantity to showcase the unique character of a pure Sangiovese from the Luce estate vineyards and pay tribute to the winemaking tradition of Montalcino.
Taste notes: The citrus, dark fruit and leaf aromas are intense. Full body, polished and chewy tannins and a flavourful finish. Extremely structured and beautiful. Two or three years of ageing would soften the taste and make for a more mellowed robust red.
Recommended Food Pairing: Roast beef and lamb rack, tomato based pasta, aged cheeses, curries, Indian cuisine, roast duck.
