Patrimonio rouge, Domaine Leccia - 2020

  • Provenance: Corsica
  • Appellation: Patrimonio
  • Domain: Leccia
  • Grape variety(ies): Niellucciu
  • On-call time: 10 years
  • Alcohol degree: 13.5%
If there's one colour Lisandru Leccia is particularly keen on, it's red, because he's determined to prove that nielucciu is not synonymous with rusticity or harshness. And he's succeeding, thanks to his viticulture and without the help of wood. His Patrimonio 2020 is a fine, precise wine marked by the fruitiness of red and black berries, enhanced by hints of cocoa and spices. Supple and delicious on the palate, it offers both drinkability and structure, just like an Italian wine! Guide Vert RVF: 93/100

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!
