Very close to the medieval Tuscan town of San Gimignano – called the Manhattan of Tuscany, the town with the one hundred towers – where the great land is framed by soft hills you will find the wine and olive oil estate IL LEBBIO. We are working hard every day with all our passion and love to enable a careful wine and oil production.
The name IL LEBBIO comes from a wild plant which is growing spontaneously on our land especially in between our vineyards. Nearly all our vineyards have positions which are exposed to the sun. This allows the grapes to obtain an ideal maturation. The family Niccolini is running the wine estate on its own, for several generations they have been collecting waste experience in wine-making and production. The Niccolini´s do not stop in front of new technologies in order to produce wines of an excellent quality.
