The 2010 Luce della Vite Brunello di Montalcino is a dark and impenetrable wine that oozes intensity and impressive opulence. This is one of those Brunello wines that takes Sangiovese to the outer limits of concentration at the outer edge of space and then flings it back down to us earthlings to enjoy. Given the softness and the textural richness, it's safe to predict that this wine will drink well in both the near and long term. It has that unique aging flexibility. Only the tannins, mostly oak tannins by the taste of them, need additional softening and finessing that should occur with extra cellar aging. There's a touch of bitter astringency as well that is distracting. By the taste of it, the 2010 Luce is the biggest and most extracted Brunello in 2010.

Very powerful aromas of blackberry, fresh mushroom, iron, spice and lightly grilled meat. Full body with layers of fruit and earth character. Decadent and intense. It's a phenomenal wine. Incredibly layered and muscular. Better than the legendary 2006? Built for aging. Better in 2018.
