100% Vermentino di Toscana white wine made following organic farming principles. Straw yellow colour. It opens on the nose with a good aromatic charge of ripe fruit, reminiscent of apricot and peach followed by floral and mineral sensations that give great persistence. In the mouth it is expressed with harmony and fullness thanks to its good acidity and its resting on the noble lees. Rich aromatic profile: from white flowers to pleasant citrus vibrations that follow each other at every sip, leaving a pleasant mineral aftertaste.
Donatella and Bruno
Born as an organic Farm, La Leccetella covers about 80 Ha divided in vineyard, woodland, and olive groves. Out of these 80ha, 12ha are vineyards.
The farm is located in Casciano di Murlo, just a few kilometers from Siena and on the edge of the Montalcino DOC. The vineyards seat at 450mt a.s.l., facing the Mediterranean sea and without winter fog or spring frost.
The soil is composed mainly of marlstone and are planted with Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Vermentino and, the most recently added, Cabernet Franc.The soil is extremely rich and together with the optimal weather conditions allow the growth of grapes of exceptional quality.
Since the extraordinary properties of the terroir, Donatella and Bruno's main goals is to use modern techniques only to best reflect the flavours in their bottles and reducing to the minimum the carbon footprint.
