Lecci e Brocchi Chianti Classico 2020
Podere Lecci e Brocchi is a small family farm and vineyard in the Castelnuovo Berardenga region of south-eastern Chianti Classico. The vineyards are undergoing organic certification and are farmed traditionally. Sabrina Lastrucci manages the vineyard and winemaking along with her husband Giancarlo and son Giovanni.
INTRODUCING PODERE LECCI E BROCCHI
Sabrina Lastrucci has led Podere Lecci e Brocchi since 2011 when her father Vasco passed the farm over to her keen management. Vasco had previously sold the Chianti Classico fruit from the farm he purchased from the parish priest in 1970 on the edge of Villa a Sesta and accumulated a full cellar of winemaking materials and equipment over his lifetime as an avid hobbyist. Sabrina continues the traditional winegrowing techniques of her father but now with an official organic certification underway.
The steep, concave vineyard is tucked between the surrounding trees and brush at a relatively high elevation (400 meters) for the Castelnuovo Berardenga region in the south-east of Chianti Classico. The soil is mineral-rich, red Galestro which is atypical for Berardenga as well, contributing to the red fruit aromas and bright character of the wines. Lastrucci has planted some new bush-trained vines of Malvasia Nera with the intention of continuing the tradition of blending local varieties to complement the robust Sangiovese character. In the cellar, Lastrucci maintains a hands-off approach. She chooses not to drive her wines to fit the character of score-seeking Chianti Classico. Instead, Sabrina embraces the terroir-driven style of a wine that is approachable and ripe, representing the beautifully lifted style that matches her vision for Chianti’s future.

THE CHIANTI RUFINA
The present Chianti Rufina area was in part delimited in the Bando (Proclamation) issued by Cosimo III de’ Medici, Granduca di Toscana, in 1716.
The aim of the law was to border four areas in Tuscany for the production of wines that could be sold under the area name: Pomino, Valdarno, Carmignano and Chianti. In 1967 Chianti Rufina obtained the d.o.c. and in 1984 the d.o.c.g. Today the Chianti Rufina appellation, extending over 750 hectares, is the smallest appellation of Chianti.
Due to the peculiar characters of the area, the famous Italian journalist Luigi Veronelli, already back in the seventies, invited the producers to achieve a separate appellation “Rufina”, a challenge that unfortunately has not yet been seized.
