Tenuta Luce is a luxurious wine estate situated in the scenic hills of Montalcino, Tuscany. The estate was founded in 1995 by two prominent wine families, the Frescobaldis and the Mondavis, who combined their expertise to create an exceptional range of wines. The estate's flagship wine is the Luce, a bold and elegant blend of Sangiovese and Merlot that has garnered numerous accolades and critical acclaim.
The estate covers over 600 hectares, with 120 hectares dedicated to vineyards. The vineyards are situated at an altitude of 300-400 meters above sea level, with soil consisting of a mixture of clay, sand, and limestone. The unique terroir of the estate, coupled with the use of sustainable viticulture practices, results in exceptional grapes that are handpicked and sorted before being carefully crafted into world-class wines.
In addition to wine production, Tenuta Luce also offers visitors the opportunity to experience the beauty and culture of Tuscany through guided tours and tastings. Guests can explore the vineyards and cellars, learning about the wine-making process and the history of the estate. The tasting room, located in a historic 18th-century farmhouse, provides a stunning setting to sample the estate's wines while taking in the breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.
