Tenuta Licinia was founded with the idea of bringing back to life historic vineyards with interesting subsoils in a part of Tuscany where fine wine production largely disappeared in the 20th century.
Jacques de Liedekerke, starting in the 1970s, planned to bring back one particular plot that he had identified. It took him thirty years to prepare the project and finally replant the Sasso di Fata vineyard in 2006. In 2020, his grandson James Marshall became the winemaker and started farming the first Sangiovese plot, Montalceto, a tiny one-hectare plot nearly 20km from the winery.
We now have just 6.5 Ha of vines and alongside that there are 60Ha of forest.
