"Lecciaia Rosso" Toscana IGT - Fattoria La Lecciaia

Lecciaia Rosso IGT represents the entry wine for the beautiful Montalcino winery. Nevertheless, it is produced with the same care and precision as its big brothers. In this case, the base blend is composed of 70% Sangiovese grapes to which 30% of other typical Tuscan red grapes are added, in varying percentages. The harvest begins at the end of September and is carried out, also in this case, all by hand. The ripe grapes are harvested and placed in small crates where they are kept intact while waiting to be taken to the winery. For vinification, as usual, we use temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. Here the grapes are left to macerate for a period of at least 15/20 days, during which they are subjected to frequent pumping over to facilitate the extraction of colour. Once fermentation is complete, after racking, the wine is left to mature in Slavonian oak barrels for about a year. In the glass it is a beautiful ruby red colour, with delicate and floral scents. Fresh and medium structured, the nose is pleasantly persistent. A nice red to offer on the table every day.

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.

    Here's a lean entry-level value wine to drink with simple meals among family and friends. The La Lecciaia Rosso di Montalcino shows medium-dark fruit and good concentration, backed by fruity texture and succulence. There is a touch of sour cherry, but that tartness is amply balanced out by the soft spice and earthiness you get on the close.
