Sangiovese and Merlot sprouted during the first week of April and continued to grow regularly by exploiting the abundant water reserves left over since 2014 and by rainfall in the winter of 2015.
The season continued with a dry and sunny climate which allowed a homogeneous development of the leaf curtain without phytosanitary pressures.
In the first week of August, two important rains gave relief to the plants and lowered the temperatures allowing the vines to synthesize secondary metabolites (aromas, anthocyanins, tannins) of primary importance for the quality of the Lucente 2015 wines. It has an intense red color with violet reflections.
The nose opens with an explosion of black fruits such as blackberries and blueberries, black cherries in alcohol enriched with discreet spicy notes.
In the mouth it is juicy, soft, enveloping with a dense and subtle tannic texture and a very long finish.
