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

Good medium red. Musky, inviting, soil-driven aromas of dark raspberry, cherry, leather and game. Silky and rich on entry, then surprisingly backward and unforthcoming in the middle, with acidity slightly elevated today. Nicely vinous wine, finishing with sweet tannins and very good grip and length.

This red is rich and sumptuous, yet well-defined by bright acidity and lovely balance. This frames the cherry, strawberry, spice and tobacco flavors, while the tannins should soften soon. Fine length. Best from 2014 through 2025.

The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino needs a lot of time in the glass to find its focus. Once the bouquet opens up the wine reveals pretty red berries intermingled with sweet floral notes, spices, leather and licorice. This is a fairly burly 2007 with considerable structure. A few years of bottle age are needed for some of the angular contours to soften. Anticipated maturity: 2014–2024.

Fattoria La Lecciaia has established itself as one of the most consistent producers of Brunello. Each of the last several vintages have been outstanding and because of the remarkable value, quickly became far and away favorites with Wine Express customers. This latest release from the the superb 2007 vintage is another winner. It received 91 points from both Wine Enthusiast Magazine and the Wine Spectator. James Suckling scored it 95 and said "Aromas of black truffles and roses, with dark fruits. Full-bodied, with a solid core of pure fruit and super silky tannins. This has so much class and finesse. Wonderful length too. Better in 2014. Best ever from here." Grab it while it's On Sale!!!
