Brunello la Lecciaia Rv03 2003
"The cask-aged 2003 Brunello di Montalcino is dense and sweet, with superb intensity in its dark cherry fruit that is buffered by elegant tannins. Its open, accessible personality makes it a great choice for near-term drinking. This is yet another example where the regular bottling offers greater balance and harmony than the top-of-the line selection. " - Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate
External Reviews for Brunello la Lecciaia Rv03
La Lecciaia delivers a soft and generous Brunello with deep aromatic layers of leather, licorice, cedar, dried black currants, spice and prunes. The aromas are intense but lack some of the immediate freshness you'd expect. In fact, it's best to drink this wine within the next three or four years.
Raspberry, flowers and citrus fruits on the nose lead to a full-bodied palate, with lots of fruit. Almost jammy, but fresh and dense. Generous. Best after 2010.
Plush aromas of black cherry and blackberry. Full-bodied, with soft, silky tannins and a long, delicious finish. There's fresh acidity and lots of subtle flavor on the finish. Still needs a little time to open. Best after 2010.

This is yet another example where the regular bottling offers greater balance and harmony than the top-of-the line selection. Anticipated maturity: 2008ndash;2016.
The 2004 Brunello di Montacino offers up dark red fruit, flowers and spices in a soft, accessible style. This medium-bodied Brunello flows with beautiful length and ripe, finessed tannins. Clean, mineral notes frame the wine nicely. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.
