Luce della Vite was the first wine ever produced in Montalcino by blending Sangiovese and Merlot grapes. In 1998, Luce della Vite teamed up with Jacopo Poli to create a Grappa of exquisite quality that honours the terroir from which this outstanding wine originates. This is young-special-edition-single-vintage Grappa. Certo.

Surprisingly Good - its odd, but in a good way.
Not a fan but wouldn't turn it down either
That’s a very special grappa. Aromas are beautiful, flavor on the very suave side.
Sweet. Grapey. An acquired taste.
light and easy going, not the best, but not the worst.
Awful. Glad I only got a sample of it. Half of that sample went down the sink.
Should be called Crappa. Absolutely the worst sorority I’ve tasted. Complete garbage and a waste of money.
very good taste, light and good body
Light on the tongue, but smells terrible, and the flavor of figs (or dates) overpowers the end. May work well with a cigar, but I'll never ever pay for this to find out. Blegh.
Heavy floral and bitter notes. If you like Campari you'll probably appreciate some of the flavors.
Probably the worst thing I've ever paid to consume.
This is the first grappa I have had and I hated it. Tasted like somebody wrung sweaty socks out. I'm normally a whisky drinker so maybe this just isn't my taste.
Doesn't overpower you with fire or flavor, unlike other grappas I've tried. Very light, very subtle.
Right from the beginning this drink presented a very heavy "Oranges" flavor to me. I slowly sipped the drink in an effort to allow the proper mixing/dilution of the ice and Jacopo Poli to see if perhaps the overwhelming Orange flavor would somewhat subside. It did not and I cannot recommend this presentation. I would not purchase again.
Decent. I liked how it smelled better than how it tasted. Grappa so far isn't something that I particularly like.
Odd and definitely different. Wasn't my favorite. Wasn't the best on the nose but did taste better than it smelled. Had a slight heat and spicy profile to it, definitely carried itself with the consistency of a wine. Decent but just not my preference.
