La Lecciaia Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
The wines of La Lecciaia have excellent character and flavor thanks to the particular vineyard situation, soil structure, and excellent climate. This wine is made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes sourced from estate vineyards in Montecucco (Grosetto Province). The soils are light and well-draining, and the planting density is medium using traditional Cordon trellising. The grapes were hand-harvested in late September, early October, when the grapes reached peak ripeness and maturity. Vinification was in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks, then aged for 18 months in a mix of Slavonian oak casks and barrique.
