5 of the 77 hectares under vine on the Luce della Vite estate are officially listed in the Register for Brunello di Montalcino DOCG. These vines yield the fruit for Luce Brunello, the winery’s tribute to the noble wine that emerged in Montalcino in the second half of the 19th century and the first to obtain, in 1980, the status of DOCG. Luce Brunello wine thus continues solidly on the path of excellence inspired by the uniqueness of its territory of origin.
