The First Wine Dinner of the Fall Season!
The Luce vineyard—adjacent to Marchesi de'
Frescobaldi's famous Brunello estate, Castel Giocondo—sits at elevations
of 1300 to 1500 feet, one of the highest vineyard sites in Montalcino.
At the bottom of the vineyard, the soils are rich in clay, perfect for
Merlot. At the higher elevations, the well draining sandstone and
limestone soil produce expressive Sangiovese.
brightly as the very first blend of Sangiovese and Merlot from this
highly-regarded Tuscan winemaking region. The history of the wine dates
back to 1995, when Robert Mondavi of California and Vittorio Frescobaldi
of Tuscany joined hands to create an
Italian wine of extraordinary quality. Today, the vision of the Luce
partnership is carried on by the Frescobaldi family; as sole proprietors
they work diligently in the cellar and vineyards to produce a wine that
truly expresses the region—sustainable agriculture honors
the unique slate and rocky limestone soils, yielding elegant Sangiovese and round, supple Merlot.
Expertly guided by Shane Lessard, Master Sommelier
and featuring the
delectable and award-winning cuisine of Chef Jeffrey Thompson,
this is a
dinner that shouldn't be missed!
