San Leonardo

About San Leonardo

Trentino's San Leonardo is dubbed the Sassicaia of Northern Italy for a good reason; San Leonardo’s owner, Marchese Carlo Guerrieri Gonzaga, spent time at Tenuta San Guido (the producer of Sassicaia) in the 1960s, and even employed the same consultant, the legendary Giacomo Tachis, as the fabled estate.

His incomparable pedigree extends way beyond the training with Tachis. Having inspired by the greatest minds of both Bordeaux and Italian winemaking, Gonzaga also worked under the late Émile Peynaud, the world's most influential enologist, before returning to his family's estate. Now taking charge of the ancestral property, he works closely with the fabled Italian winemaker Carlo Ferrini, the forger of multiple 100 point scores at Tenuta Giodo, who occupies a consulting role at San Leonardo.

San Leonardo 2015 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (97+)

The 2015 San Leonardo pours forth with a beautiful velvety appearance and sultry dark garnet color. This wine shows a lot of life and dark fruit purity with black plum, blackberry, cassis and tarry prune. There is a delightful note of black pepper that is specific to this warm and sunny vintage. The fruit shows softer and richer concentration compared to past vintages and more pulpy density that gives this edition a bigger profile in terms of mouthfeel. Production is 75,000 bottles. San Leonardo is a wine made for long aging, but the nice thing about this vintage is that the bouquet remains quite accessible at this young age. Nevertheless, I'd still suggest keeping this bottle in your cellar so that it can calmly finish its evolution.

San Leonardo Villa Gresti 2015 (6x75cl)

Vinous (93)

The 2015 Villa Gresti di San Leonardo is a blend of Merlot with a dollop of Carmenère from an old vineyard located around Villa Gresti. It opens up with breathtaking aromatics, showing dusty black cherry and wild blueberry with a peppery, herbal infusion, as notes of moist dark soil and roses form. There’s a stimulating mixture of acids and salty minerals that offsets its silky textures in a red-fruited display that is more savory than sweet. Tannins build but never get in the way, finishing lifted and refined, with notes of blueberry skins and herbs. Wow.
