Tasting Notes

Fattoria La Lecciaia is situated in Vallafrico, amongst some of the oldest and most prestigious vineyards of Montalcino. The land extends to over 90 hectares: 16 hectares of which are under vine, and more than half of that is used for the production of Brunello di Montalcino DOCG.

Purchased in 1983, the winery has been rebuilt and is equipped with modern winemaking technology, yet La Lecciaia still adheres to the old traditions of Brunello. The wines have excellent character and flavour thanks to the particular vineyard situation, soil structure, and excellent climate.

"Manapetra” is the cru of the property, with 100% estate-grown Brunello (Sangiovese Grosso) grapes coming from a specific vineyard site, at approximately 350-400 meters altitude. Density is average but yield is low. Hand- harvested around the end of September, early October.

Alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperatures for 15-20 days, then aging in large oak botti for a minimum of 36 months, then six months in bottle before release. Less than 1 gr/L residual sugar; 14% alc./vol.. 12,700 bottles produced.

Vintage note: 2013 is rated a 4 star vintage by the Consorzio di Brunello - a “Classic” Brunello vintage, with the ability to age.

Our tasting note: Intense deep ruby/red colour, with complex aromas and flavours of wild dark berries, cassis, and blueberry, with spicy, earthy, leathery, floral notes. Richly elegant, this wine is medium to full-bodied, and well-structured on the palate. Rounded and soft on the finish; the fruit, acidity, and fine juicy tannins are all well balanced.

Pairings: Will pair with earthy dishes, and particularly braised/grilled meats (steak, lamb, and game).
