In Tenuta Luce, each plot has different features.
The altitude varies between 200 and 430 metres above the sea level. The Land varies greatly in terms of soil, with three main areas: mixed-clayey soil below; sand and cleavage on top; gold sand and sandstone in the middle area.
Different soil skeletons, different balance of nutrients, which we respect in each step when we work in the fields: microorganisms and insects help make this soil, rich in minerals and organic matter, a living support. And a living soil is the best premise for a balanced ecosystem and a vineyard in harmony.
The first step towards the production of wines that are considered everywhere among the Tuscany’s finest wines.
The Sun, our emblem, our alley.
In perfect coherence with the climate of the terroir of Montalcino, the hills of Tenuta Luce della Vite also enjoy the wind’s effect, keeping the Air healthy and constantly clean; facing south, our vineyards enjoy long, hot and sunny summers.
The Sun is therefore a crucial element: an alley we must respect and understand during the long summer months so that it can make our grapes slowly and fully ripe.
