Why do we love it?

A Sauvignon Blanc from Italy's top white wine region!
Vette di San Leonardo comes from the Tenuta di San Leonardo winery, located in an area with a huge wine history and countless fanatical fans worldwide. If you don't know Trentino-Alto Adige, you are very lucky to get to know it through this wine!

San Leonardo, founded in 1724 and since then, has been operating under the watchful eye of the Gonzaga family. One generation succeeded the other and with them, followed the knowledge and experience in viticulture and winemaking. The real winemaker of the family, however, was Carlo Guerrieri Gonzaga, since he was that reactionary type of the family, who, enchanted by the great wines of Bordeaux, took the decision to go against the current of the rich and the barrels (which had an unimaginable appeal in the then public) and completely change, the style of his own. Elegance became the trademark of the winery and the reason why its wines became some of the most sought-after in the world!

In his 300 hectares of vineyards, the red varieties Carmenère, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon found the right soil and formed the backbone of the production, certified organic since 2018. Fortunately, Carlo realized very early on that the very special location of the vineyards and the huge natural barrier of the Alps, not only cut off the breath, but also the wind. And so he decided to cultivate Sauvignon Blanc on the peaks (Vette) that had the appropriate altitude, to highlight the nerve and crispness of the variety. And that was a very wise decision!

Vette di San Leonardo consists of 100% Sauvignon Blanc grapes. The vintage was made manually from vineyards with an average age of 10 years. After 12 hours of maceration at a low temperature to enhance their aromatic profile, the grapes were lightly pressed and their juice fermented for 20 days in stainless steel tanks. The wine remained for 5 months in contact with its lees and there it acquired its elegant texture and explosive aromas!

If when you serve the first glass, you hear rustling leaves, birds, and a cool breeze passing through you, don't worry at all. It is the Alto Adige effect and it has happened to us too.









Tastes Like

In the glass, the color is bright golden with soft green highlights. On the nose, it has a complexity with aromas of grapefruit, apricot, unripe peach, fresh melon, citrus, lemongrass, and pear framed by botanical notes of freshly cut grass and green tea.

In the mouth, it is of moderate volume with a very satisfactory structure and refreshing acidity. Lime zest, peaches, and green pepper give a strong sense of freshness. In the aftertaste the soft minerality is addictive.
