Lovely. New to the whole "appreciate wine for being wine" thing, but this blows most of what i've had out of the water. Rich aroma, tangy too. Decent amount of tannins and a rich, dark medium full flavor. Something like dark cherry...reminds me of eating devils food cake. definitely worth a shot.
superb in May 2010
Bought a bottle for the table tonight at The Russian Tea Room. An absolute delight! Substantial and resonant while maintaining an appealing fruitiness. It had a splendid nose and drank divinely. Earned its 4-glass rating from me!
Sangiovese Nice ruby color, cherry and damp earth on the nose but falls completely on it's face when you taste it - very very flat. This wine is dead.
External Reviews for La Lecciaia Sangiovese Grosso
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.

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.

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: 2009andndash;2019.
