Frescobaldi “Lucente” (2016) Toscana Rosso IGT
Lucente is the second wine of Luce. It is the result of a selection of Sangiovese and Merlot grapes capable of producing an immediate and very pleasant wine, in a contemporary style.
Grapes: Sangiovese and Merlot
Vinification: The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 28 ° for about 12 days, with a stay on the skins for 22 days, the malolactic fermentation takes place in steel, followed by an aging in both new and used barriques for 12 months.
Tasting notes: Wine of a beautiful deep ruby color, which reveals intense scents right from the start, where perfectly ripe small black fruits (blackcurrant and blackberry) and notes intertwine spices (spice bread, cinnamon). The mouth appears juicy, savory and already gives us a beautiful complexity, tinged with delicate notes of Mediterranean scrub and supported by a delicious and well-balanced structure. In the mouth the wine is open and ample. An impression of tension and freshness predominates, complemented by a precise and silky tannic structure. At the end Lucente offers a good persistence made of softness and a pleasant sense of freshness.
Pairings : red meats, cheeses and cold cuts.
Format: 750 ml
