La Lecciaia Rosso di Montalcino 2004
Wine Advocate 91 points – After a string of vintages that left me less convinced, La Lecciaia Rosso di Montalcino 2004 2004 represents a turning point for La Lecciaia. This is the best base Brunello I have tasted from this producer. The wine is dark and savory with loads of Indian spice, cured meat and dried fruit. But the bouquet feels a lot cleaner and tighter than we have seen in the past. Dark espresso bean and black licorice are folded within. The fruit does feel evolved compared to its peers, but this wine is still very much in the running. It also represents a good value, especially for Brunello novices..Monica Larner, February/2015
