Fattoria La Lecciaia

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. 

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.
