"Il Baccanale" Toscana IGT 2017 - Fattoria La Lecciaia

The bacchanal was a Roman festival, with a background of appeasement, dedicated to Bacchus, the ancient god of wine and harvest. In the common tradition, moreover, Bacchus represents the pleasure of the senses and entertainment. It is therefore difficult to imagine a more apt name than this for a wine with such great personality. It is made from a blend of Sangiovese grapes, the large type used to produce Brunello, and Cabernet Sauvignon, an improving variety par excellence. The two varieties go into the blend in equal parts, 50%. For vinification, as is customary at La Lecciaia winery, steel vats are used, with temperatures kept constantly under control to encourage the extraction of the best aromas. After vinification, however, the maturation phase proceeds differently depending on the variety. The Sangiovese, in fact, rests for a minimum of 48 months in Slavonian oak barrels. For Cabernet Sauvignon, on the other hand, the period of maturation is shorter, about 24 months, but in small barrels, the classic French barriques. The result is a pleasantly complex and nuanced wine, with red and black fruit in clear evidence, well integrated with toasted notes from the aging process. In the mouth it reveals itself to be a wine capable of giving great satisfaction. A great choice when the evening promises to be fun.

La Lecciaia is a young but proud farm that operates in full respect of the ancient traditions of Brunello di Montalcino. It is located in the locality of Vallafrico, on the border of the oldest and most prestigious Ilcinesi farms. The particular geographic position, the structure of the soil and the goodness of the microclimate, are the ingredients that convinced Mauro Pacini to buy the estate in 1983, immediately equipping himself with the most advanced winemaking techniques. The estate covers 60 hectares and includes woods and olive groves, as well as 15 hectares of vineyards, more than half of which are registered for the production of Brunello. In recent years the Pacini family has launched an ambitious plan for viticultural development, focused on the enhancement and diversification of the typicality of its Sangiovese terroirs, launching a plan of micro-zoning and reasoned particularization. So the old worthy vines are identified and processed separately. Where it was necessary to replant new vines, different clones of Sangiovese were chosen. To date, therefore, about 10 clones are grown. And each of these contributes (or will contribute) to the complexity of the wines of Lecciaia. But the projects don't end there. Mauro Pacini and his team are in perpetual motion. There's no shortage of ideas. Too bad that even in Montalcino there are only 24 hours in the day.
