For 700 years, Frescobaldi have been at the centre of Tuscan wine history. The juicy, mid-weight Leccioni Chianti 2014 shows Sangiovese in its pure form.
The noble Chianti house of Frescobaldi, established over 700 years ago, is famed for a range of wines that define the spirit of Tuscany. Frescobaldi’s Leccioni offers a pure look at Chianti’s star grape, Sangiovese. From the sensational 2015 vintage — already heralded as one of the best in recent history — this wine sees no oak, which allows the bold cherry, red plum and spice flavours of Sangiovese to be fully revealed. Juicy, medium-bodied, with fine, unobtrusive grape tannins, this appetizing red wine is fit for antipasto, or simple pasta sauced with ragu or marinara.
