Luce Della Vite 1997 Sangiovese blend

Luce 1997 is a firm and distinctive wine, yet refined and elegant, showing a striking ruby colour. A rich, variegated nose releases seductive fragrances of raspberry and blackcurrant that dance together with smoother notes of vanilla and clove, bringing to the bouquet notable warmth and length. The tannins are exceptionally fine-grained and velvety, which adds immeasurably to the complexity of this wine.
