92pts James Suckling

A pleasantly chewy Brunello with a full body, giving it a soft and round form. It shows berry, chocolate and walnut flavors. Attractive finish. Give it two or three years to soften.

91pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The La Lecciaia 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is a generous, full-bodied expression of Sangiovese (a grape that is usually on the leaner side of the spectrum). It shows a pretty dark ruby shine with aromas of dark cherry, dried currant, balsam herb and crushed flowers. Despite the rather grand presentation of aromas, the wine is more subdued on the palate with dry tannins and a good sense of textural richness. The finish is more abrupt in this wine compared to some recent editions from cooler growing seasons.

Winemaker Notes

Intense ruby red, garnet tends with aging. Aromas are characteristic and intense. Dry, warm, slightly tannic, robust and harmonious. A wine with a high alcohol content and long aging, it is marketed in the fifth year after the harvest, after spending three and a half years in large oak barrels followed by at least 4 months of aging in bottle.

At the table it goes very well with game and meat. Excellent with aged cheeses, alone as a meditation wine.

Winery Notes

Purchased by Mr. Mauro Pacini in 1983 and upgraded with the most advanced winemaking installations, Fattoria la Lecciaia is a wine estate that combines a young, dynamic approach to the wine business, while strictly adhering to the antique traditions of Brunello di Montalcino. Located in "località Vallafrico" and surrounded by the vineyards of some of the most iconic estates of the area, the estate is in the center of the original micro-terroir where the world-famous Brunello di Montalcino was first produced. Fattoria La Lecciaia is a beautiful property of 60 hectares surrounded by the vineyards of some of the oldest and most renowned estates of Montalcino. The estate has 15 hectares of vineyards, of which 12 are registered for the production of Brunello di Montalcino. The rest of the property is under olives groves and woodlands. The unique terroir of this small but world-famous micro-area in the appellation of Montalcino, naturally enhances the scents and the elegance of Sangiovese grapes, allowing Fattoria la Lecciaia to produce the most quintessential "Brunello di Montalcino" wines: classic and intense, suited for long ageing.
