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. A portion of the vineyards was planted in 1977, while most of the vineyards were planted/replanted from 1997 on with an average density of 6,100 plants per hectare. At elevations ranging from 350 to 420 metres, the estate is one of Montalcino’s highest. At the higher elevations the soils are rich in galestro, a schistous sandstone and limestone mixture, with well-drained, nutrient-poor soils ideal for the cultivation of Sangiovese. At the lower altitudes, the soils are richer in clay, perfect for Merlot. Recently several acres of Cabernet Sauvignon were planted in the areas of the estate with more sandy soils. The long, sun-drenched summers typical of this area and the altitudes and southern exposure of estate’s vineyards allow for a slow, complete ripening of the grapes, which in turn yields wines of impressive concentration and power. The cool, ventilated nights, help to preserve the grapes’ aromatic complexities.
