San Leonardo 2013

A powerful yet elegant red, San Leonardo brings together the colours, aromas and savours of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Merlot aged in small oak barrels, melding them harmoniously into a uniquely intense, full-bodied wine with superb depth of flavour. Before bottling, the precise proportions are decided only after rigorous tasting of samples, barrique by barrique. The early months of maturation in cement tanks are followed by 18-24 months in new and pre-used barriques and then a further 12 months in bottle prior to release. Intense ruby red in colour, the aroma is expressive with balsamic notes, forest fruits, chocolate, tobacco, pepper and elegant nuances of bell pepper. The palate is full, warm and impressively rounded, with intense aromatics that linger on the palate.

Wine Advocate - December 2018

“The flagship wine from this celebrated Trentino estate was not produced in 2012. We do have the stunning 2013 San Leonardo on the market now. This vintage is large in scale and has immediate intensity, and I am somewhat surprised by the volume and seamless bouquet that appears this early in the game. This vintage shows balanced ripeness with plummy fruit aromas that are carefully contrasted against spice, leather and fine tobacco. The blend is Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Merlot, and San Leonardo is always aged in barrique for four years (of which only 25% of the barrels are new). This is a bottle to keep long (extra long) in your cellar.” -Monica Larner
