This vintage of Frescobaldi's superstar Luce della Vite makes a bold statement thanks to its ruby concentration and intensely inviting aromas of cherry, cola, leather, vanilla and blackberry. It is a big, modern wine (50-50 Sangiovese and Merlot) that flaunts many deep layers of intensity and flavor with firm tannins and excellent persistency on the finish.

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
