Luce was created in 1990's from a partnership between Robert Mondavi and Vittorio Frescobaldi. The union inspired a project that aimed to go beyond the borders of tradition in the Montalcino region, to produce exceptional wines from an outstanding terroir. In 2016 winery was built completely integrated with the landscape of the vineyards.
The estate is located southwest of Montalcino town and has 77ha of estate vineyards in total.
Lucente is the second wine from Tenuta Luce, and it's produced from the same vineyards as Luce. It's a blend where Merlot dominates and Sangiovese is used as a complement. The wine is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel vats, and aged for 12 months in part new, part re-used wooden barrique.
