"Tasted as a preview sample from bottle, the 2014 San Leonardo is set to be released in April or May of 2019. This vintage still needs time in the bottle to flesh out and take on more volume. In its youth, the wine takes longer to open. However, it already shows that characteristic San Leonardo pedigree with extremely polished tannins followed by bright fruit intensity with plum, spice and dried mountain herb. The wine's acidity adds to the glossy and bright personality of this mid-weight vintage."

"An elegant, medium- to full-bodied red, in a traditional style, featuring a rich array of red currant and raspberry fruit, accented by wild sage and woodsy spice details, firmed by sculpted, fine-grained tannins. Offers a fresh, mineral-laced finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Merlot. Drink now through 2024. 5,416 cases made. — AN"
Tenuta San Leonardo is one of the most historic wineries in all of Italy. The Estate has been making wine for over 300 years on this historic property.
This full bodied red is Cabernet based and has a lot of the same characteristics of Bordeaux and Super Tuscans. The balance between fruit and ferrous is what makes this wine special. Open now and scant for aeration or save for the next ten years. This is one of the most versatile wines we have had so far!
