Langhe DOC 'Long Now' 2015 (750 ml.) -...
- On sale!
Toscana Rosso 'Lux Vitis' by Frescobaldi is a red with a Mediterranean character, rich and complex. Everything comes from a Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard planted in Montalcino in 2004 on mixed sandy soils. Thanks to the exceptional quality of their grapes, Frescobaldi has decided to produce an exclusive wine, capable of interpreting the Tenuta Luce terroir through Cabernet Sauvignon. A small part of Sangiovese grapes has been added to these grapes to enrich their character. The long aging in new French oak barrels for 24 months has further enhanced its elegance. Collectible for those who love to invest in the world of wine or enjoy a memorable drink. Awesome.
Tenuta Luce extends south-west of Montalcino in the heart of the Natural Park of Val d’ Orcia, a rural landscape cleverly and aesthetically redesigned by man in pre-Renaissance times and recognized in 2004 as an Intangible Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO. It is in this extraordinary land, historically known for its high quality wines, that the 249 hectares of Tenuta Luce are found. This pristine and sparsely populated environment is rich in biodiversity and includes a large wooded area, olive trees and 88 hectares of vineyards. The philosophy of Tenuta Luce is built upon the idea that wine should be as natural an expression of the place where it is produced as possible, as well as of the specific characteristics of each grape variety, thus achieving a perfect balance between grapevine and terroir. Human intervention is quite limited and always non invasive and has to objective of protecting this natural harmony. The wines of Tenuta Luce were born in the early Nineties of this unique terroir and philosophy from the meeting of two great men of wine, Vittorio Frescobaldi and Robert Mondavi. Having chosen Montalcino, they joined their knowledge together to pursue the potential of this terroir, so well-suited for winemaking, in a highly distinctive way. Since 2004, when the partnership with Mondavi ended, Lamberto Frescobaldi helms the Tenuta Luce project, supported by an entire team dedicated to the perpetuation of this vision.
