Lying on the gentle slopes to the south-west of the village of Montalcino in Tuscany, the Tenuta Luce vineyards cover an area rich in biodiversity, one of the most suitable for the growing of grapes. A biodiversity that we take care of every day, with utmost respect. It is no coincidence that this is the homeland of Brunello di Montalcino, one of the world’s most famous Italian wines.
At Tenuta Luce, each vineyard parcel has different characteristics and the altitudes range from 200 to 430 meters above sea level.
The land here varies greatly in terms of soils, attributable to three main areas: mixed-clayey in the lower, sandy-schistose in the upper, yellow sands and sandstones in the middle.
A land of different compositions and differing balances between the nutritional elements, which we respect in every phase of soil processing: the soil, rich in minerals and organic materials, is an steadfast support to the grapevinnes also thanks to the microorganisms and insects that inhabit it.
A living soil is the best prerequisite for the balance of the ecosystem and the harmony of the vineyard, and the first step towards the production of wines considered everywhere as amongst the greatest Tuscan productions.
The Sun, our symbol and ally.
In the best of climatic traditions of the Montalcino terroir, the hills of Tenuta Luce are touched by the winds that keep the air healthy and constantly clean. Exposed to the south, our vineyards enjoy long, hot and sunny summers.
The Sun, therefore, is a decisive element; it is an ally to be respected and understand well during the long summer months, which brings our grapes to a slow and complete ripening.
