When we tasted this wine, we were reminded of the great Brunello di Montalcino.The nose is complex and fine, revealing aromas of black fruit and Earl Grey tea, combined with refined hints of violet.The palate is deep and complex, dominated by morello cherry, with very fine tannins that carry the wine through to an elegant finish. A real favourite. Guide Vert RVF: 94/100

Technique

Viticulture

Clay-limestone soil. Traditional tillage. Age of vines: 26 years. Density/hectare: 4,000 vines. Yields: 35 hl/ha. Short Royat cordon pruning. Only sulphur and copper are used.

Oenology

Hand-picked, selection of the best plots, optimum ripeness and quality of the grapes. Total de-stemming, pumping over once a day until density 1000, temperature controlled at 25°-30°C, vatting time 21 days in stainless steel vats. Alcoholic fermentation: approximately 20 days (indigenous yeasts), malolactic fermentation completed. Aged for 24 months in stainless steel vats.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Bonifacian-style aubergine • Shoulder of veal with preserved lemon and coriander.

As he likes to say, there is only one (!) Domaine Leccia. And while Lisandru Leccia is Yves' son (Yves seceded to set up his own business), he does cultivate the vines of his aunt Annette, who is the sole owner of the family estate. And the boy has character, as well as talent. To be honest, we've never tasted wines like these from the Patrimonio vineyards. So precise, so straightforward, so fresh, so well-cut. Highly expressive vintages, which perfectly express the temperate local climate as much as the personality of these beautiful limestone soils. The white is a vermentinu benchmark, aromatic and as sharp as you could wish for; the rosé is in the same vein, with at least as much salinity. And the reds, what reds! Aged without the use of wood, they are an ode to niellucciu, better known as sangiovese, here interpreted as intense, juicy crus. Accessory to the Pettale cuvée, which bears a striking resemblance to a great Brunello di Montalcino. Finally, the Muscat is to die for - we love it!
