"A very dry growing year. Precipitation of only 229 mm from April to October made it the least rainy year since 1983. The flowering period was very favourable, with only 36 mm of rainfall in May and June, followed by normal weather. September was very dry, with almost no precipitation and day-night temperature fluctuations of more than 15 °C. The harvest took place from mid September until early October in ideal conditions. Half bottles: 4,690; bottles: 81,059, magnums: 3,048; double magnums: 199; imperials: 10; salmanazars: 10. Dark crimson. The nose is decidedly lifted with a stony element, somehow. Then there’s a deeply fruity undertow expressing considerable ripeness. Big, bold and like a particularly fresh red bordeaux. Claret incarnate, with that stoniness on the finish too." 18 pts, Jancis Robinson

"The 2000 San Leonardo comes from a relatively uneventful vintage and displays classic characteristics of the wine, without extreme high or low points. In fact, this vintage will be remembered for its even-keeled nature and abundant fruit generosity. The wine still tastes young, despite its 15 years in the bottle. It opens to plush cherry, blackberry, Indian spice and tobacco. There's a point of strong firmness to the tannins that suggest it needs a few more years in the bottle. Harvest was finished on time by mid-October. By the 2000 vintage, Tenuta San Leonardo had reached its current average production of 95,000 bottles per year." 92 pts, Monica Larner, WA

"Dusty rose, a mix of dried cherries, black currant, plums and smoky minerality make the 2000 San Leonardo a total pleasure. Round textures give way to ripe red and black berry fruit, contrasted by a mix of stimulating acids and minerals. Fine tannins slowly mount toward the finale, which is long and spicy, leaning more toward the sour red fruit end of the spectrum. Peppery herbs linger, along with just a hint of heat that creates a warming effect, yet there’s no lack of balance. This warm and dry vintage created a larger-scale San Leonardo, which may not enjoy as long of a life as some of the surrounding years. Still, it is drinking beautifully right now and at no risk of decline in the immediate future." 91 pts, Eric Guido, Vinous (July 2020)
