Wine of the Week: Lucente
Here at Siena, we love a good Super Tuscan wine. And when that wine is also a great value, we want to share it with everyone!
When the Frescobaldi family joined forces with Robert Mondavi in 1995, they created the Luce della Vite (Light of the Vines) winery. Two wines with an unparalleled pedigree were born: Luce and Lucente.
Our wine of the week, Lucente, is one of Stan’s favorites and has had a long and successful history on the wine list. A blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon, it strikes the eye with a deep purple hue that let’s you know it means business.
This is a wine of depth, boasting notes of blackberry jam and plums alongside hints of chocolate and toasty vanilla oak. Smooth, rich tannins round out the total package for a wine that packs a real whollop.
Lucente means “shining,” and this star of a wine definitely shines for us!
