“Surely the most successful Bordeaux blend of Northern Italy”

  •   Trentino, Italy
  •   Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Merlot
  •   2010

"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."
95/100 Wine Advocate (May-2016)

…one of the great wines of Italy… Sassicaia and San Leonardo seem like brothers separated in childhood.
Wine Advocate, December 2014 

Surely the most successful Bordeaux blend of Northern Italy
Jancis Robinson (Aug-2012)

The wines are more akin to Bordeaux than Bolgheri with their balance and purity and (says leading Italian critic Nicolas Belfrage) ‘can have an elegance-cum-depth capable of taking on the best clarets of the world‘. San Leonardo’s owner Marchese Carlo Guerrieri Gonzaga, a rare example (at the time) of a professionally-trained aristocrat-oenologist, spent time at Tenuta San Guido back in the 1960s and subsequently employed the same legendary consultant, Giacomo Tachis, as Sassicaia for a time.

San Leonardo’s outstanding Bordeaux blend has received ‘Tre Bicchiere’ from Gambero Rosso for an extraordinary thirteen vintages consecutively and was also numbered among the Guide’s ‘Fifty Wines which changed Italy’. After great write-ups from Jancis and Will Lyons from the Wall Street Journal (whom we introduced to the estate), the Wine Advocate finally got on board with Monica Larmer giving recent vintages of San Leonardo 94-97 point scores.
