Visually the 2008 LUCE purple is very intense and concentrate. The bag is characterized by a great aromatic finesse, which emerge as a fruity blackberry and black cherry, accompanied by balsamic notes of eucalyptus and mineral notes of graphite. In the final show tobacco and dark chocolate. The attack in the mouth is a fine tannic structure and balanced by a very dense body generous with a pleasant acidity. In the very long finish and persistent and harmonic.
