99 Luce della Vite, Toscana Luce

The most elegant of all the pre-2000 Mondavi-Frescobaldi wines. The American influence is clear here, as it is in all of the joint-project wines, but the 99 exhibits exquisite balance and an uplifting brightness of fruit. Medium tannins support wonderful blueberries, dark cherries, light earth, and a dynamic vanilla-laden oakiness. Supple.
