Chianti Classico Riserva, Castello La Leccia 2019

4.000000000 star rating 1 Reviews
This serious Chianti Classico Riserva benefits from a excellent vintage and, although drinking well on release, it will age beautifully too. Perfumed with cherry, balsamic spice and cedar, the tannins are extremely fine, carrying red-berry fruit and forest-floor complexity through to the finish.

Castello La Leccia

Castello La Leccia is an ancient village about a mile to the south of Castellina in Chianti, perched on a hill at 1,476 ft. The estate of some 180 hectares, with about 20 hectares of vineyards, dates back at least as far as 1077, and was a Florentine outpost in the 16th century owned by the Ricasoli family.

In 1919 it was bought by the Daddi family, who made the wine with increasing care – as its growing quality shows under the aegis of Francesco Daddi. They sold the property in 2019. The vineyard is organically farmed, without synthetic herbicides or pesticides, and the wine is 100% sangiovese.
