It took us all the experience acquired over many years of careful and respectful observation of Nature to breathe life into Lux Vitis.
Everything began in a Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard planted in Montalcino in 2004 on mixed sandy soil. Over the years, we observed these vines as they grew and were surprised by the exceptional quality of their grapes, so much so we decided to make an exclusive wine, capable of interpreting the Tenuta Luce terroir through Cabernet Sauvignon.
To these grapes, 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.
This was back in 2015, and we named this wine Lux Vitis.
An imposing wine of an almost impenetrable dark red colour and a complex nose that ranges from the scents of red fruits to spiced and toasted aromas. In the mouth the wine manifests all its potency, revealing great elegance, a perfect balance between alcohol, acidity and structure, and a beautiful tannic structure that leads to an incredibly aromatic and persistent finish.
