The citrus, dark fruit and leaf aromas are intense. Full body, polished and chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Extremely structured and beautiful. Needs two or three years to soften.

The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Luce is packed tight with brightness and sunshine. Compared to the family's other Brunellos made under the Castelgiocondo brand, this wine is more opulent, more concentrated and more modern or contemporary overall. It is designed to appeal to an international audience for sure and most certainly delivers the goods if you are looking for roundness, ripe fruit and thick texture. It is deliciously irresistible with bold cherry, exotic spice and tobacco. That bright acidity on the close will help the wine age carefully over the next 10 years. -Monica Larner

Cellar Selection. 0 Made with Sangiovese and Merlot, this vibrant red offers aromas of mature black-skinned berry, exotic spice, purple flower, coconut and a balsamic note. The full-bodied palate has weight and finesse, delivering dried black cherry, raspberry, espresso and star anise alongside a backbone of bright acidity and firm, velvety tannins. Hold a few more years to let this fully come together. Drink 2019–2028.
