Fattoria la Lecciaia Riserva Brunello di Montalcino 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"Mature-looking mid ruby with broad brickstone tinged rim. A little grubby on the nose but with air shows savoury meaty and tobacco notes. Acidity keeps it lively, but no great complexity otherwise. Drink from 2013 to 2018. (WS)" (01/13) - 15 out of 20 Points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages Wine: "Made with 100% Brunello grapes (special selection of Sangiovese). Intense ruby red, tending to garnet with aging. Dry, warm, slightly tannic, robust and harmonious. A wine of high alcohol content suited for long aging, is marketed in the fifth year following the harvest, after spending three and a half years in large oak barrels, followed by at least 4 months of aging in bottle." - Winery Producer: "The Lecciaia purchased by Mauro Pacini in 1983, transformed and equipped with the most advanced winemaking techniques, Azienda Agricola is young but in full respect of ancient traditions of Brunello di Montalcino. Situated in the locality Vallafrico the border with the oldest and most prestigious farms in Montalcino , where the particular location, the soil structure and the goodness of the microclimate in the past have allowed the birth of the prestigious Brunello wine." "It covers 60 hectares including forests, olive groves and 15 hectares of vineyards of which more than half enrolled in the production of Brunello . The rest are dedicated to the production of other wines with structure, character and exceptional taste." - Winery This wine was also rated 89 Points by the Wine Enthusiast.

La Lecciaia acquistata da Mauro Pacini nel 1983, trasformata e dotata delle più avanzate tecniche di vinificazione, è Azienda Agricola giovane ma nel pieno rispetto delle antiche tradizioni del Brunello di Montalcino. Situata in località Vallafrico a confine con le più antiche e prestigiose fattorie di Montalcino, dove la particolare posizione, la struttura del terreno e la bontà del microclima hanno permesso in passato il nascere del prestigioso vino Brunello. Si estende per 60 ettari comprendendo boschi, uliveti e 15 ettari di vigneti di cui oltre la metà iscritti alla produzione di Brunello. I rimanenti sono dedicati alla produzione di altri vini con struttura, carattere e sapore eccezionali. Dagli uliveti otteniamo un olio caratteristico per sapore e corpo, con la prerogativa di quasi totale assenza di acidità Read less
