12X Terre di San Leonardo, 2015
A classic, oak-aged, Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Carménère
"The 2015 Terre di San Leonardo , sister wine to the Vette. A classic, oak-aged, Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Carménère, it has impeccable pedigree, being a young vine version of the mighty San Leonardo itself, the wine that’s often referred to as the Sassicaia of the north and regularly voted the best red in all Italy. Enjoy a bit of stardust at a fraction the price the grand vin fetches. £18.10 down from £19.10."
Jonathan Ray, Spectator Wine
Tenuta San Leonardo is the top winery in Trentino and one of the most consistent in the whole country (its top wine, known by a number of top critics as "the Sassicaia of the North", has been voted the best wine of Italy for two consecutive years).
Terre is from the younger fruit and, Merlot-dominant, at the price compares favourably to a warm vintage Pomerol or Saint Emlion, full of spicy ripe plum and roasted herbs.
