More about Lucente IGT Toscana ...  Located in the viticultural zone of Montalcino, southwest of this medieval town, the Luce della Vite estate comprises 192 hectares, with approximately 55 under vine.

Originally a joint venture between Vittorio Frescobaldi and Robert Mondavi, today the wine estate is part of the Tenute di Toscana holding company, which in turn is controlled by Marchesi de Frescobaldi.

Lamberto Frescobaldi now has the responsibility of shaping the future of the wine project originally undertaken by the founders. 

Lucente is Luce’s second wine, sourced from the same vineyards as Luce. The grapes are carefully selected to yield a wine with a contemporary flair, reflective of its distinctive terroir. The soils in the vineyards are predominantly clay based, which have good water retention, providing the vines with a natural water supply
