Producer Information

When Vittorio Frescobaldi met Robert Mondavi in the early 90s, a new chapter in the history of the great Tuscan wines was written. From that meeting, a wine came to life inspired by the desire to make a dream come true: to create a wine in Montalcino, a land of choice for the production of excellent wines, that went beyond the boundaries of tradition, while acknowledging and celebrating it, by treasuring the experiences of two historic families in the world of wine. This ambitious project took the name of Tenuta Luce, a name that evokes the sunlight of Montalcino, which is the source of life and nourishment, and marks the passage of the seasons and sets the pace for any and every agricultural activity. Since then, Tenuta Luce has always honoured this vision and the symbolic wine of the Tenuta, Luce.

In 2005, Lamberto Frescobaldi, Vittorio’s son, inherited the direction of the Tenuta Luce project. Today, he is responsible for all production guidelines, from the vineyard to the creation of the blends of each vintage. His work, driven by deep respect for the land and its people, results in transforming the fruits of the grapevines into fine wines, which reflect the beauty of the land where they are born. In 2016, following the latest acquisition, Tenuta Luce equipped itself with a new winery, an underground structure perfectly integrated into the land of Montalcino.

The estate stretches over 249ha in Montalcino, of which 88 are currently under vine, all located at an altitude between 230 and 418m asl.
