Fattoria La Lecciaia Brunello Di Montalcino Manapetra

Rated 95 by James Suckling
“Very attractive aromas of cherries and currants with subtle cedar, mahogany and floral character, following through to a full body with a deep center palate of fruit and creamy, refined tannins that carry through the beautiful finish. Succulent and wonderful. I like the minerally undertone to it.” James Suckling

Rated 91 by Vinous Media
“The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Manapetra is a pretty and understated effort. Wild strawberries, roses, mulling spice and a hint of cedar create a wonderfully nuanced display. Very much like the nose, its palate focuses more on purity and feminine grace than texture or power, showing notes of wild berry and tart cherry with salty mineral tones. Refined to the last, this finishes classically dry and structured with inner florals and just a hint of brown spice. I’m very interested to see how the Vigna Manapetra will evolve with a few years of cellaring.” Eric Guido

Description

“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.

In 2003 Fattoria la Lecciaia purchased a property of 90 hectares in the upcoming appellation of Montecucco, in the Tuscan Maremma. In 16 hectares have been planted mainly with Sangiovese, but also with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon vines. The modern fullness of the high-quality wines produced from this area completes the range of typical Tuscan wines produced by the estate. The estate’s wine-cellars are located in Montalcino and Campagnatico and have been recently enlarged and modernized. They are now equipped with the best installations, allowing for the most respectful winemaking techniques thus preserving the quality produced in the vineyards.” The Importer
