Tasting Notes

La Lecciaia was purchased in 1983 and is situated in Vallafrico, bordering some of the oldest and most prestigious vineyards of Montalcino (Biondi-Santi and Barbi). The land extends to over 60 hectares: 15 hectares of which are under vine, and more than half of that is used for the production of Brunello. 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.

This is the first certified organic (BIO) wine for the producer.

Made from 100% Sangiovese grapes sourced from estate vineyards in Maremma (Grosseto Province). The vineyards are at about 100m above sea level, with predominantly clay-loam soil, the planting density is medium, using traditional Spurred Cordon trellising. The grapes were hand-harvested in late September, early October, when the reached peak ripeness and maturity.

Vinification was in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks for 15-20 days, then aged for six months in oak barrique, then in bottle until released to the market (total one year). 14.5% alc./vol., less than 1 gr/L RS.

Tasting Note: Ruby red in colour, with slight garnet tinges (typical of Sangiovese). Intense aromas of wild berries and blackberry, with floral notes, mocha and baking spices. Medium-bodied, and rich on the palate. Smooth tannins, with a lingering finish.

Menu Matches: Complements fuller-bodied foods like steak, braised meat dishes, and game. Also pasta with meat-based sauces, and pizza.
