The Land is matter; it is the origin of everything. The land of Montalcino is our home. A magical place where wine is life, tradition and culture. The village, perched on an enchanting hill, retains its medieval charm. The surrounding area, so classically Tuscan, is part of the Natural and Cultural Artistic Park of Val d’Orcia.
The Land, here in Montalcino, takes the shape of gentle slopes covered with vineyards, olive groves and woods. A territory with a microclimate of unparalleled value for the cultivation of grapevines.
A daily commitment that sees us intent on safeguarding the balance of elements to fully appreciate a territory of unparalleled value.Harvest after harvest we put our knowledge and experience to good use, respecting the times of Nature and interpreting its signals.
Each of our wines represents a different expression of our territory.
In Tenuta Luce, man observes Nature with infinite respect; he interprets it giving life to wines that cherish this land, exalting it with distinction.
Respect for a unique land and for the people who work there, for the curiosity and intelligence of those who have given life to this vision over time; for beauty is life because it nourishes our ability to do things well. From all of this comes the harmony of Tenuta Luce.
Luce is the first wine to be produced from a blend of Sangiovese and Merlot in Montalcino. Perfect harmony between the structure and elegance of Sangiovese and the roundness and softness of Merlot. Luce is the iconic wine of estate, capable of expressing, vintage after vintage, our original interpretation of these lands.

Luce 2019 has an intense ruby red color. The nose is striking with its floral hints of violet and rose accompanied by red fruits such as raspberries and sweet spices. In the mouth, the wine is balanced and elegant with an almost creamy texture supported by silky and well-integrated tannins. Spicy notes accompany the persistent finish.
Sophisticated aromas of lead pencil, graphite and blackcurrant. Hints of black olives and herbs, too. Full-bodied, yet tight and deep, with super precision and intensity to the tannins. Incredible balance of structure and finesse to this. Give it time in the cellar. Better after 2027.

All older vintage wines have been purchased from a single collectors cellar. Pictures can be requested before shipment.
Bouchard Pere & Fils Nuits-Saint-Georges is made from 100 percent Pinot Noir.
Intense aromas of berry fruit and spices on the nose. Rich, tannic and well structured, this wine develops additional roundness after a few years in bottle. Good ageing potential. Pairs well with game, venison, all grilled and roasted meat.
