Grapes
Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese

It took us all the experience acquired over many years of careful and respectful observation of Nature to breathe life into Lux Vitis.
Everything began in a Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard planted in Montalcino in 2004 on mixed sandy soil. Over the years, we observed these vines as they grew and were surprised by the exceptional quality of their grapes, so much so we decided to make an exclusive wine, capable of interpreting the Tenuta Luce terroir through Cabernet Sauvignon.
To these grapes, we added a small quantity of Sangiovese to enrich the wine’s character. The long ageing in new French oak barrels for 24 months further enhanced the elegance of this new wine by Tenuta Luce.
This was back in 2015, and we named this wine Lux Vitis.

An all natural bond with the land.

The light that brings life.

Lux Vitis comes from a small 3-hectare Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard in an area of the Estate characterized by mixed-sandy soils. Here this grape is able to express its intrinsic characteristics with great elegance.
A small addition of Sangiovese to the blend gives further character to Lux Vitis, whose annual production is very limited.

The production process

Experience in what we do

At the heart of the property lies a pulsating heart. A heart that beat after beat marks the moments that give life to the wine. This is our cellar, where matter evolves and transforms, and where time is the time of wine.
During the harvest, the ripe fruits arrive in the cellar from every single parcel. Each phase is respectful of the integrity of the fruit. The selection of the grapes is followed by the fermentation process with indigenous yeasts and the soft pressing.
After the vinification it is time to wait. Weeks, months, years go by slowly in the barrel room while the wine rests and evolve into its own.
Man becomes a respectful interpreter of what nature has given him, in the incessant search for balance that evolves in the Cellar.
Knowing how to wait is an art.

From the grape to the bottle, man accompanies wine

Respect for nature.

In Tenuta Luce, man observes Nature with infinite respect; he interprets it giving life to wines that cherish this land, exalting it with distinction.
Each of our wines represents a different expression of our territory.
Harvest after harvest we put our knowledge and experience to good use, respecting the times of Nature and interpreting its signals.
A daily commitment that sees us intent on safeguarding the balance of elements to fully appreciate a territory of unparalleled value.
