2012 is a special vintage in which Luce celebrates its 20th anniversary. A precious case enfolds the bottle, dressed with its celebratory label: the gold highlights the brilliant lustre of the logo. The wine greets the eye with a dark ruby, then unfurls a forceful, complex bouquet of remarkable depth, characterised by rich notes of wild blackberry and blackcurrant. Delicate hints of spicy clove and black pepper enliven the background, and subtle impressions of black liquorice and balsam gradually make their presence felt as well, creating an aromatic amalgam of enviable richness. The palate opens generous and full-volumed, with ripe tannins that enfold the mouth in their velvety softness, while the near-endless aromatic progression is enhanced by a hint of smokiness through its entire length.
