Podere Salicutti is gem of an estate located in Montalcino and one of the leading figures in the tiny, yet burgeoning 'Natural Wine' movement in Brunello appellation. It is run meticulously by Francesco Leanza who left his career as a chemical engineer in Rome to dedicate himself full-time to Podere Salicutti in 1995. Leanza originally purchased the property in 1990 and immediately began reviving the olive grove and renovating the building on the estate. A few years later, he set out to revive the vineyards, which he had begun replanting in 1994.

So delicious. Classic Brunello but maybe a little lighter / easier to drink.
