Today, Tenuta Lenzini is among the most interesting realities in the lucchese oenological landscape, with wines that are becoming more and more defined. Thanks to a renewed attention to the fertility of the soil, helped first by the passage to the organic and then to the biodynamic, from the vineyards and then from the cellar come expressive wines, very territorial and unique; they represent a projection of the place and people who work with wisdom and love and preserve its authenticity, without altering the natural features that grow year in year.
The estate, now managed by the excellent winemaker and spouses Benedetta Lenzini and Michele Guarino, extends for 24 hectares in the splendid hills of Lucca, set in a natural amphitheater that determines the particular microclimate. Thirteen are the hectares of vines on clay mature soils, with sandy areas, where international varieties such as Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot are planted and native varieties such as Vermentino.
The choice was very difficult, because all were very good and unique as features; we propose the Casa e Chiesa 2015 Merlot, an impressive wine despite its simplicity, sliding, juicy and full of flavor; the Vermignon 2016, a blend of Vermentino and Sauvignon grapes, with fresh acidity and a great aromatic complex that concludes with a sour taste; the Poggio de Paoli 2013, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Alicante Bouschet grapes, a delicious tasteful wine and articulated on a potent but well-composed tannin texture.
