Luce is Frescobaldi’s iconic wine, capable of representing, harvest after harvest, the excellence and uniqueness of quality wines made in Italy in the world. A wine born from the harmony between the primary elements, from the balance of our vineyards, from the perfect balance between the elegance of Sangiovese – the main grape of this territory – and the power of Merlot – introduced in Montalcino by the Frescobaldi family since the years’ 70.
