Blog: Tenuta Luce | Toskana




The Italian winery Luce, located in the heart of the renowned Bolgheri wine region in Tuscany, has had a checkered history. It was founded in 1995 as a joint venture between the famous Frescobaldi family and the American wine producer Robert Mondavi.

The idea behind the creation of Luce was to create a wine that combined the best elements of both countries and cultures - namely italy and france. Luce's vineyards are located on a unique soil characterized by clay, limestone and sandstone. This soil, combined with the mild climate and proximity to the sea, creates ideal conditions for the cultivation of grape varieties such as Sangiovese (italian) and Merlot (french), from which the winery's main wines are made.

Luce is not an ordinary winery, however, as it has had different owners and managers over the years. After Robert Mondavi left the company, Luce was managed by Lamberto Frescobaldi, who made the winery one of the most successful in Italy. After the death of Lamberto Frescobaldi in 2015, his son Lamberto Frescobaldi Jr. took the helm and led the winery into the future.

Luce's most important wines are the Luce and the Luce Brunello. The Luce is a blend of Sangiovese and Merlot and has been produced since 1993. The wine is known for its deep red color and complex aroma of cherries, spices and chocolate. Luce Brunello, on the other hand, is made exclusively from Sangiovese grapes and is aged for at least 24 months in oak barrels. This wine has a more intense color and a complex aroma of cherries, tobacco and leather.

Luce's success is based on the winery's philosophy, which focuses on combining tradition and innovation. The wines are made in the traditional way, but at the same time, the most modern technologies and techniques are used to improve the quality and taste of the wines. The winery also has a strong commitment to sustainability and environmental protection, which has led to the development of a number of projects and initiatives aimed at minimizing environmental impact and protecting the soil and plants.

Overall, Luce Winery has a fascinating history of combining Italian and French wine traditions. The unique soils, mild climate and modern technologies have helped Luce become one of Italy's most successful wineries. If you are a wine connoisseur looking for a unique wine tasting experience, Luce is an excellent choice. - Gerardo [TS05/23]
