What do we mean by these definitions? Click HERE to find out!
This Sangiovese was born with the (successful) intention of creating a Brunello outside the area, in fact the winemaking is exactly the same. Aging in wood gives the wine notes of oak and tobacco, adding an extra level of complexity and making the wine ideal for aging. Its structure is well balanced, with soft tannins that develop over time. This wine is perfect for special occasions and pairs beautifully with red meats and mature cheeses. It is a wine that not only satisfies the palate but also the soul, offering a complete tasting experience.

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.
