Winemaker Notes

Color: intense ruby ??red, garnet tends with aging. Aromas are characteristic and intense. Dry, warm, slightly tannic, robust and harmonious. A wine with a high alcohol content and long aging, it is marketed in the fifth year after the harvest, after spending three and a half years in large oak barrels followed by at least 4 months of aging in bottle.

At the table it goes very well with game and meat. Excellent with aged cheeses, alone as a meditation wine.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 95
James Suckling
A wealth of dried cherry and flower aromas follow through to a full body, fine tannins and a raspberry and cherry aftertaste. A fruity yet subtle red. A beauty. Fantastic for the vintage. Drinkable but so much better in 2020.
V 93
Vinous
Bright deep red. The pure, enticing nose hints at raspberry, gunflint, licorice, and minerals. Dense but juicy, this boasts terrific energy and an enticing mineral overlay to its bright, precise red berry and floral flavors. Outstanding focus and lift here, but this will need time to expand. Finishes with building but subtle concentration and great length. Knockout stuff.

Fattoria La Lecciaia, Italy
La Lecciaia purchased by Mauro Pacini in 1983, transformed and equipped with the most advanced winemaking techniques, is a young farm but with full respect for the ancient traditions of Brunello di Montalcino.

Located in the Vallafrico area bordering the oldest and most prestigious farms of Montalcino, where the particular position, the structure of the land and the goodness of the microclimate have allowed in the past the birth of the prestigious Brunello wine.

It covers 60 hectares including woods, olive groves and 15 hectares of vineyards of which more than half are registered for the production of Brunello. The rest are dedicated to the production of other wines with exceptional structure, character and flavor.

Famous for its bold, layered and long-lived red, Brunello di Montalcino, the town of Montalcino is about 70 miles south of Florence, and has a warmer and drier climate than that of its neighbor, Chianti. The Sangiovese grape is king here, as it is in Chianti, but Montalcino has its own clone called Brunello.

The Brunello vineyards of Montalcino blanket the rolling hills surrounding the village and fan out at various elevations, creating the potential for Brunello wines expressing different styles. From the valleys, where deeper deposits of clay are found, come wines typically bolder, more concentrated and rich in opulent black fruit. The hillside vineyards produce wines more concentrated in red fruits and floral aromas; these sites reach up to over 1,600 feet and have shallow soils of rocks and shale.

Brunello di Montalcino by law must be aged a minimum of four years, including two years in barrel before realease and once released, typically needs more time in bottle for its drinking potential to be fully reached. The good news is that Montalcino makes a “baby brother” version. The wines called Rosso di Montalcino are often made from younger vines, aged for about a year before release, offer extraordinary values and are ready to drink young.
