Wine AdvocateAfter a string of vintages that left me less convinced, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino 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.
Wine EnthusiastGarnet colored with brick tones around the rim, this offers aromas of underbrush, vanilla, leather and dried berry. The palate is still rather closed but displays dried red cherry, white pepper, clove and savory herb alongside austere tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2017-2022.
