Sorgente Brunello di Montalcino
Salicutti is the first organic estate in Montalcino, founded by Francesco Leanza, who recently retired and sold the estate to the Eichbauers, a family focused on continuing the legacy of uncompromising quality.
With only four acres of Brunello, the production is tiny and was traditionally blended into one cuvée before the estate decided to focus on unique bottlings going forward: Piaggone, Sorgente, and the Teatro Alto, all of which have a distinct style. The Teatro Alto is arguably the most elegant and energetic, while the Piaggone the most powerful.
The wines of Salicutti are defined by their terroir, the care taken in the vineyard, and deft winemaking that yields wines among the most elegant in Montalcino.
