Wonderful and enjoyed with another 2007 from this zone. Very smooth and drinking perfectly, however could hold for another 5years. — a month ago
Luce from ‘97, back when Frescobaldi and Mondavi began their collaboration with this signature Sangiovese Merlot blend. Shows greats signs against the past 26 years. Brickish color. The nose shows plum, chocolate, leather, damp fall tree leaves and wet wood. The wine gently surrounds the palate with hints of preserved black fruit (figs and plum). Follows with a dry mouthfeel, medium plus body, dissipating tannins, low but present acidity and alcohol; lingering earthy finish. In my cellar for a few years and always had my doubts but the wine still holds, keeping any longer is risky… — a month ago

Medium ruby in color; cherries, black pepper, and smoke on the nose; high acidity; medium tannins; tastes like sour cherries, clay pots, and strawberries with a long finish. It really opened up after decanting for about an hour. Nellie says she likes the flavor, but it's really acidic. Should be great with a creamy pasta. I agree it's too acidic without food. — 3 months ago
