A monastery of over 1000 years heritage (Roman frescoes adorn the old chapel), for over 3 centuries San Leonardo, at the foot of the Dolomites, has served as the residence of the Marquis Guerrieri Gonzaga family, its proud custodians. Whilst its red Bordeaux grape blends are the most vaunted in Northern Italy their Sauvignon Blanc, a more recent addition to the range, has proven to be a perfect balance between the sophistication of Sancerre and the exuberance of Marlborough.

"This one took me by surprise when first tried on release - San Leonardo and white wine production did not compute in my mind. However it was a matter of moments to get with the programme." Tom Harrow, Wine Guru  

"Lots of sliced green apples and mouthwatering gooseberries on this one, and not, thankfully, much in the way of pyrazine character. Good body and oiliness on the palate, but it’s also taut and quite vivacious. Drink now." 92 pts, James Suckling

"Vette 2018 is 100% Sauvignon Blanc and is full of thirst quenching deliciousness with notes of green apple, gooseberry, sage and white peach. The palate is expressive with riper gooseberry, peach and pineapplealong with a fine mineral backbone and a unctuous oily texture which is just divine. Enjoy as an aperitif or with grilled fish, white meats, soft cheeses and charcuterie." Angus, Wine Guru
