1996 San Leonardo is a wine of minute details and budding complexity.
- Trentino, Italy
"From a cool vintage, the 1996 San Leonardo is a wine of minute details and budding complexity. The quality of fruit shines bright and the wine boast beautifully balanced acidity that adds energy and a great sense of vertical lift or buoyancy. Small fruit nuances are embellished by more substantial layers of tobacco, cola, mint and dusty mineral. The wine evolves slowly in the glass, producing many enticing aromatic layers that peel back slowly one at a time. It is ready for immediate consumption and although it is drinking wonderfully right now, it seems near the end of its evolution." 92/100, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate
