"Aromas of fresh herb, green tea and currants follow through to a medium body, firm and silky tannins and a crisp finish. Tangy undertone. Drink now." ~JS
Wine Advocate 90
"The 2013 Terre di San Leonardo is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere from various vineyard points across Tenuta San Leonardo's holdings. This is a bright and brilliant ruby red with a cheerful personality and vibrant aromas of dark fruit, mountain herb, wild berry, dried tobacco and mint. The wine delivers a fresh approach with crisp acidity to keep the palate refreshed. Drink: 2016-2022."~ML
Wine Spectator 88
" A bright expressive medium-bodied red, with abundant wild herb and spice notes up front accenting the palate's red currant, raspberry and mandarin orange peel flavors. Drink now through 2021."~AN

Located in the Vallagrina, an area carved out by the Adige river, Tenuta San Leonardo enjoys a temperate climate that benefi ts from the Ora del Garda wind. Once a medieval fi ef that spanned over 740 acres, Tenuta San Leonardo has been producing wine for centuries. Under the ownership of the Guerrieri Gonzaga family since the mid-18th century, this estate has often been the setting of historical events, from the marriage of Longbard kings to the negotiation of the WWI armistice with Austria.
Today, San Leonardo has approximately 50 acres of vineyards planted with international varietals that thrive in the varied microclimates of the estate. The majority of the vineyards are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, but Carmenere, Cabernet Franc and Merlot are also abundant. Cultivation is focused on low yields and highly concentrated grapes. The resulting wines have a great depth, concentration and an aristocratic finesse that can go toe-to-toe against the world's finest Bordeaux blends.
