Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2004 La Lecciaia
It's Back! Last year we offered this rare Riserva and it sold out in a day. We finally convinced the winery to send us more so here it is! The very last of this incredible Brunello. Don't Miss It!!

In a fairly short amount of time Fattoria La Lecciaia has become one of the most consistent producers of Brunello di Montalcino. Follow traditions but using modern methods they make estate Brunello from their 36 acres of Sangiovese Grosso vines. Of course 2004 was an outstanding vintage and the La Lecciaia Brunello '04 was one of our most popular wines of all time. Now just released, we have their Brunello Riserva 2004. A small quantity of this rich, intense Sangiovese was produced from the best lots of the 2004 vintage. Aged an additional 2 years as proscribed by the DOCG, it's already garnered triple 90+ point scores including 92 from the Wine Advocate who said "The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is one of the more accessible wines of the vintage. Dark cherries, plums, flowers, spices and tobacco emerge with gorgeous clarity and detail. The wine’s inner sweetness takes on more prominence on the mid-palate, leading to a long, polished finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020." On Sale for a limited time!

        Comments about Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2004 La Lecciaia:

        There are few things as pleasurable as great Brunello from a fantastic vintage, and this La Lecciaia Riserva is proof. Wonderfully aromatic exuding black cherry, plum, tobacco, spice and hints of lavender on the nose, giving way to a truly balanced palate of acid, tannins, alcohol and focused fruit. It is drinking beautifully right now, but you could age this another 3-7 years if desired.

            I think this wine needs more time in a cool cellar. I have had many Brunellos from La Lecciaia before yet not the reserve. They were great right out of the box. Waiting for a big payoff.

              just let this breathe for a few hours and sit back back and enjoy every sip of this wonderful brunello. Just gets better every hour. Perfect for a Sunday afternoon.
