Of the many wine tastings we did during our recent trip in the Cortona/Montepulciano area, Leuta was by far our favorite. We had actually tasted their Cab Franc at a party before visiting the vineyard so we already knew we liked the wine. What we didn't fully comprehend until visiting the winery and getting the tour and tasting with Denis and Maria was the complete philosophy and the very careful thought, attention to detail, and passion that goes in to every aspect of Leuta wine making.
Visit the vineyard and you will get a tour, tasting, and educational explanation of their wines. Beyond that, you will gain an understanding of the many considerations and facets to creating exceptional wine. Leuta is a relatively new vineyard. It is not a big commercial operation, but rather a intimate boutique winery. Your experience will be personal and casual. Don't worry if you are a neophyte when it comes to wine. It is completely un-intimidating and you will leave Leuta with a greater understanding of wine making and appreciation of fine wines. Don't forget to bring some home with you. Due to limited production very little is exported. We are savoring our last few bottles and wish we had brought back more!
