La Lecciaia's Syrah IGT is a wine that represents a perfect fusion between Tuscan tradition and oenological innovation. This wine is made with Syrah grapes, famous for their spicy and fruity aromatic profile. Aging in wood gives the wine a complexity and structure that makes it unique. On the nose, notes of black fruits such as blackberry and currant are perceived, enriched by nuances of black pepper and vanilla. On the palate, the wine is full and enveloping, with balanced tannins that lead to a long and persistent finish. This Syrah is the ideal pairing for red meat and game dishes, but it is also perfect to enjoy in moments of relaxation or on special occasions.

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.
