Fattoria La Lecciaia was founded by Mauro Pacini in 1983 in Montalcino and extends over 60 hectares of which 15 are vineyards. At the beginning of the 2000s the family purchased a further property in Maremma in the Montecucco denomination, and the company was then enriched with another 16 hectares of vineyards. The marvelous main cellar remains that of Montalcino nestled around the Manapetra vineyard from which the precious Cru produced by the company derives. The grapes are best exploited thanks to careful and meticulous care during vinification and the wine is subsequently enriched 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 notable and persistent on the palate.
