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.
