Why do we love it?

Terre di San Leonardo is a Bordeaux blend from the Trentino-Alto Adige honored soils. Tenuta San Leonardo is one of the 2 most important wineries in the area and one of the few that have realized the amazing potential of the region. In addition, Terre di San Leonardo, with 93 pts by James Suckling puts the value for money scale on another basis.

Tenuta di San Leonardo, one of the most historic wineries in the area, was founded in the 18th century. If you are not familiar with Trentino-Alto Adige, it is located in northern Italy and has a huge wine history. If you did not know it,Terre di San Leonardo is the best way to discover it. The Gonzaga family has been runing the winery since its inception, in 1724. Carlo Guerrieri Gonzaga left his mark on the wines of the winery, choosing to adopt a more refined style (the one he preferred). When everyone wanted to produce rich, intense, barrel-aged wines, the "stubborn" Carlo Guerrieri Gonzaga insisted on keeping the style and elegance of his wines. This was the wisest decision he made since this, not only characterizes the wines of the winery until today, but it is also what has made them famous worldwide. The other important decision that determined their style is the planting of Carmenere.

Terre di San Leonardo is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot (40%), and Carmenere (10%). The wine is fermented with ambient yeasts in concrete tanks and 20% is aged in French oak barrels. The result is impressive and fruity, with classic elegance.

Enjoy it now next to juicy fillets and think of your next trip to Italy!
