Brunello Fattoria la Lecciaia is a wine of exceptional quality, originating from the renowned Montalcino region, located in the province of Siena, Italy. Created exclusively from Sangiovese grapes, this wine draws its uniqueness from a soil of medium composition, enriched with sand and clay. The training technique used is spurred cordon. The grape harvest usually takes place in the last week of September or the first of October. The winemaking phase takes place in stainless steel vats, where the temperature is rigorously controlled for a period ranging from 15 to 20 days, during which frequent pumping over is carried out. After this phase, the wine is matured in Slavonian oak barrels for at least 36 months, before being further refined in the bottle for a minimum of 4 months. Brunello is placed on the market in the fifth year following the harvest, with an annual production of around 80,000 bottles for each year. Thanks to its long maturation period, Brunello acquires a complexity and intensity of flavor that make it unmistakable. It is a wine with a well-defined tannic structure, balanced acidity and notable aging potential. It goes perfectly with meats, particularly if roasted or stewed, and with well-matured cheeses.

Fattoria La Lecciaia was founded by Mauro Pacini in 1983 in Montalcino and covers 60 hectares, 15 of which are vineyards. At the beginning of the 2000s the family bought another property in Maremma in the Montecucco appellation, the company was then enriched by another 16 hectares of vineyards. The marvelous main cellar is always that of Montalcino set around the Manapetra vineyard from which the precious Cru produced by the company derives. The grapes are best valued thanks to careful and meticulous care during the vinification and the wine is subsequently embellished by years of aging in wood. The result is genuine wines that respect tradition with a modern imprint: structured reds with soft and velvety tannins over time, elegant fruity bouquets and remarkable and persistent palate.
