Vigneti delle Dolomiti Red San Leonardo 2017
60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Carmenère, 10% Merlot
An elegant red that’s sleek and fresh, setting ripe red and black currant, green olive and a fragrant thread of cured tobacco and eucalyptus in a well-tailored, medium- to full-bodied frame. Revealing tension and drive, with a taut structure from the fine-grained tannins, this needs time in the glass or decanting to fully express itself. Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Merlot. Drink now through 2030.
For the past 3 centuries, San Leonardo has been the residence of the Marchesi Guerrieri Gonzaga, its proud custodians. The tenuta comprises 300 hectares, of which 30 are organically-cultivated vineyards, protected from the cold northern winds by the surrounding Trentino mountains, while benefitting from the temperate breezes from Lake Garda. Here, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Merlot thrive.
