Presenting Lux Vitis
Quality doesn’t happen overnight. It’s the result of a long research and observation of Nature. This is the case of Lux Vitis, the latest born among the wines of Tenuta Luce. An exclusive wine, a distinctive interpretation of the terroir of Montalcino, in which we have further strengthened the detailed work that characterises all of our production.
Lux Vitis is born from a vineyard of Cabernet Sauvignon planted in Montalcino in 2004 on mixed sandy soil. While the vines were growing, we realised their grapes were of an extraordinary quality. The first harvest was in 2015. This vintage featured a very stable seasonal trend, both in spring and summer. This allowed for a balanced maturation of the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes carefully selected for this new excellence. To these, we added a small quantity of Sangiovese to enrich the wine’s character. The long ageing in new French oak barrels for 24 months further enhanced the elegance of this new wine by Tenuta Luce.
