Francesco Leanza built up one of the most admired estates in Montalcino: a properly boutique winery of just over two hectares.

Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Sorgente shows floral-laced sweet cherries with hints of sage, autumnal spices and cedar box. It’s soft in texture, almost fleshy at times, with balsamic-tinged strawberries and juicy acids which maintain energy throughout. A light coating of rounded tannins lingers, making for a slightly chewy finale with echoes of licorice, brown butter and rosy inner florals. The Sorgente comes across as much richer and more wood-influenced in 2016.Eric Guido

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained


All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
