Product Overview

Luce della Vite 2011 Brunello di Montalcino offers a complex bouquet, rich in notes that go from small black fruits and spices, to tobacco and tea leaves. On the palate, the wine confirms the same aromatic complexity: a soft and enveloping start is balanced by an excellent tannic texture that gives the wine a long and persistent presence.

Varietal Composition: 100 percent Sangiovese
Appellation: Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
Aging: over 24 months in hand-split French barriques and barrels, 10 percent new, 90 percent second use. Then aged over 4 months in bottle prior to release.

95 Points - James Suckling
"This is fabulous for the vintage with blackberry, blueberry and toffee-barrel aromas and flavors. Full and very deep. Fine tannins. Bright finish. Very flashy and I like it. Drink or hold."

93 Points - Wine Advocate
"As the years go by I appreciate the timeless beauty of the Luce della Vite label design. I can't think of a label that I like to look at more. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a plump and juicy wine that is packed tight with all the flavors and goodies you should expect from this celebrated appellation. The Frescobaldi family has taken great care to move away from the overripe and over-extracted style that they championed in the past. Instead, we've started to see elegant and streamlined expressions from this historic Tuscan estate. I would say that this tendency also applies to this wine, although the warm 2011 vintage definitely leaves its mark. The wine is rich and fruit-forward with opulent and fleshy layers. It is coming along nicely despite some young fruit sourness that should flesh out with a few more years of cellar aging. I suggest you drink this wine after 2018."
