Review

If there is one particular attribute that stands out in the Tenuta San Leonardo wines above any other, it is undoubtedly their elegance. An elegance that we find not only in the wines, but also on the estate, belonging to the Marquis Guerrieri Gonzaga and situated between the River Adige and the mountains.

The estate's 25 ha of vineyards, totally given over to organic agriculture since 2015, grow international varieties traditionally found in the Bordeaux area such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Carmenère. They are all present in San Leonardo, the firm's emblematic wine, and in its sibling Terre di San Leonardo.

Terre is a splendid wine, a Bordeaux blend, open and elegant. Made in the traditional way and by expert hands, the wine ferments in concrete tanks by means of native yeasts and afterwards 80% matures in large Slavonian oak barrels and the rest in other barrels. Meticulous care of the vineyard and its environment, along with just the right amount of oak, result in a wine that is captivating due to its cleanness, elegance and pleasant flavour.

On the nose aromas of blackberry and cherry stand out on a subtle and elegant spicy background. On the palate it appears perfectly balanced, with a freshness and some agreeable tannins that accentuate the sweetness of the fruit. Terre is a wine that's perfectly crafted, refined, yet easy and friendly too.

Good

Entry level from Tenuta San Leonardo, still very good. Its a bright ruby wine, a bit acidic, tasted of young fruits like plums. A bit too young for drinking now perhaps but has some potential.

Excellent northern Italian Cabernet blend.

This improved with aeration and even more so on day 2.Good structure-pairs well with food. Low alcohol and high acidity cuts through rich pasta dishes.

Tenuta San Leonardo

The San Leonardo Estate is an ancient world where the patient work in the winery, which are still artisanal, produce wines that are veritablejewels of Italian enology. Carlo Guerrieri Gonzaga, the current oenologist and owner of the Estate, profound expert and admirer of wines from Bordeaux, has transformed San Leonardo into a symbol of this territory’s international vocation. The Vallagarina, produces, between the harsh winters and mild summers, wines of exceptional aromatic...
