About

95

"San Leonardo was not produced in 2009. The 2010 San Leonardo (Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Merlot) is a seamless and polished wine that shows the best of this estate and this vintage. This is a profound and lasting wine with a bouquet that opens to dark fruit tones backed by spice, leather, tobacco and polished river stone. It tastes very young now but offers good material (in terms of richness, acidity and structure) to promise a steady aging evolution ahead. This edition of San Leonardo is gorgeous with a capital G.

The newest vintage released after my vertical tasting of this historic Italian red is the delicious 2010 edition."

Product Description:

"Located in the Vallagarina, an area carved out by the Adige river, Tenuta San Leonardo enjoys a temperate climate that benefits from the Ora del Garda wind. The varied microclimates of San Leonardo favor these varietals, with Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere and Cabernet Franc cultivated at the higher elevations and Merlot grown in the low lands of the estate. Conceived under the supervision of the acclaimed enologist Giacomo Tachis and crafted today by the renowned enologist Carlo Ferrini, this limited-production wine with aristocratic finesse has great aging potential and should be a staple of any collector’s cellar." -Importer
