Lucente 2005

Posted by

I had this during the last Vancouver International Wine Festival and thought then that it was excellent value. So much so that I picked up a bottle to drink later. As usual I couldn’t keep it for long – and this is what I tasted:

Dry, dusty cherry on the nose and tart cherry raspberry on the palate with a hint of earth. This had nice balance, but I found the length somewhat short and lacking complexity. At the same time, this wine also had very good grip and liveliness.

Very Good+
