James Suckling 95 Points
"Blackberry, floral and dark chocolate aromas follow through to a full body, with a berry, nutty and mushroom character. Chewy and structured. One of the wines of the vintage. Better in 2014."

Wine Enthusiast 92 Points
($93) Luce della Vite opens with an inky dark appearance and added extraction that is hard to find otherwise in 2008 Brunello. Soft aromas of cherry and blackberry are followed by supple fragrances of leather and spice. There is fruit pulp in the mouth and the wine’s extra richness really helps to balance out its acidity and those still-young tannins."

Wine Advocate 91 Points
"Luce della Vite’s 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Luce is one of the most powerful wines of the vintage. Mocha, espresso, licorice, smoke, super-ripe black cherries and plums literally jump from the glass. A Brunello seemingly made for Napa Valley Cabernet drinkers, the 2008 has plenty of richness and depth. It is also impeccably made from a technical standpoint, even if it bears little resemblance to the rest of the wines of the appellation. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020. "

Tasting Notes
Ruby red colour. Intense and elegant bouquet with mellow scents of berry fruits like blueberry, joined by floral notes of violet. A lovely spiciness follows with black pepper and star anise, balsamic notes as eucalyptus and mineral notes of flint. The palate reveals a notably substantial body accompanied by a long and harmonious aromatic persistence and a fine and elegant tannin texture.
