James Suckling 96
"This shows so much intensity and complexity from the get-go with a bouquet exploding with blackberries, blackcurrants, ivy, iodine, treacle and forest floor elements. Full body, tight yet generous tannins, effortless acidity and a powerful, long finish. A triumph in a challenging vintage. Better in 2019.
Jeb Dunnuck 95
"The 2014 Luce is brilliant! Based on a blend of Sangiovese and Merlot aged in 85% new French oak, it boasts a vibrant purple color as well as sensational notes of crème de cassis, black cherries, graphite, crushed flowers, and a building sense of minerality. Medium to full-bodied and concentrated, with background oak that’s covered by fruit, this pure, seamless Toscana needs a year or three and will shine for a decade or more. It’s a gorgeous wine!"
Wine Spectator 92
"Air reveals black cherry and blackberry flavors wrapped in toasty oak in this rich, polished red, supported by dense, muscular tannins. A fine effort in a difficult vintage. Sangiovese and Merlot. Best from 2019 through 2027"
