The colour is a very concentrated ruby red. The bouquet releases enticing aromas of fruit such as blueberry, cherry, and plum, giving way to spicer impressions of green pepper, nutmeg, liquorice, and anise. The conclusion offers a hint of balsam and fresh almond together with sweeter notes of milk chocolate and cedar. On the palate the wine is full and flavourful with dense, silky tannins well supported by the alcoholic component. The finish is persistent and extremely harmonious.

Wine SpectatorAromas of juniper, pine resin, coconut and vanilla highlight the cherry and raspberry flavors in this well-oaked red. Flashy, this will appeal to fans of the modern style. Merlot and Sangiovese. Best from 2016 through 2029. 1,200 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Luce della Vite bursts onto the palate with notable vibrancy in its dark red cherries, plums, flowers, licorice and sweet spices. The 2009 needs a few years for the tannins to soften but it shows plenty of energy and persistence. This is a strong showing for Luce della Vite, a Merlot/Sangiovese blend. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
