  • "At Podere Salicutti, in the Montalcino commune of Tuscany, Francesco Leanza has been making wine with humility, maturity, and conviction for nearly 25 years and now it is the Eichbauers who are carrying on this tradition. As the first organically certified estate in Montalcino, Salicutti prides itself on wines that showcase the uninhibited brilliance of its terroir.

    The Sangiovese vineyards comprise four hectares of the 11-hectare estate and are cultivated and harvested exclusively by hand. Leanza maintains his unwavering commitment to natural winemaking, now in partnership with the new owners: the Eichbauer family, who bought the estate from him in 2016 under the condition that he stay on as head winemaker. Leanza’s focus on fostering typicity and the fullest expression of Podere Salicutti’s strengths results in uniquely beautiful and complex wines that never fail to delight."  Notes and insight from the winery

      "Gentle spice, dense cherry, and red berry aromas from a well balanced vineyard boasting fewer stones and a natural spring running 4 meters below the vineyards. A bit more generous on fruit and still very seriously structured."  Notes from the winery
