I Leccioni Chianti DOCG is a soft, rounded wine. It has typical aromas of sweet violet and small red fruit. In the mouth it is balanced with medium body and measured tannins evened out by the correct level of acidity.
The record high temperatures of summer 2017 accelerated the plants’ phenological phases, leading to slightly earlier grape ripening compared to previous years (approximately 10 days). The August rains and lower temperatures brought balanced nutritional substances to the vines to nearly optimum production standards. September and October were dry, with cool (sometimes cold) night temperatures, allowing optimum, complete ripening of the grapes and a quick, easy grape harvest.
Leccioni 2017 opens up with a nose of pomegranate, raspberry, cherry and sweet violet. It has spiced black pepper and clove notes, with herbaceous scents at the finish. In the mouth, the wine is soft and rich, and confirms its marked fruity and floral bouquet.
