The color of Le Lucere Riserva 2006 is ruby red with nuances tending to garnet. The intense, fine and complex structure has strong notes of Morello cherry enhanced by a background note of spice, mostly cinnamon and cloves. On the palate, there is an initial tactile phase in which we can appreciate the structure and fullness, which is then followed by a persistent finish assured by the dense and silky tannins.
Wine Enthusiast (WE): 94
"Dense, bold and beautiful, with notes of plush cherry, blackberry, clove, cinnamon, cola and dried rosemary. Polished, with a dusty, silky feel to the long finish."
Wine Spectator (WS): 94
"This red is settling into a combination of sweet cherry and berry fruit, leather, earth and licorice aromas and flavors. The dense tannins are present on the finish, but this is beginning to come together. Fine earth, cacao and spice notes grace the finish."
