San Leonardo 2015

It wasn’t until Carlo Guerrieri Gonzaga took over the Tenuta in the 1970’s that San Leonardo began to make viticultural history. The estate has been in his family since 1724. Following his extensive experience in France and at Bolgheri’s Tenuta San Guido, Carlo set about replanting the vineyards to craft a wine that would become a Trentino, and Italian, classic. The blend is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Carmenere and 10% Merlot and with snall amounts of Franc and Petit Verdot, selected from the best barriques and only made in the finest vintages.

The 2015 San Leonardo is a classic in the making. The bouquet is wonderfully perfumed with peppery florals, mixing tart cherry and blueberry with white smoke, hints of graphite and shaved cedar. Silky textures race across a core of juicy acids and minerals, making for a ripe yet cool-toned and pleasurably tactile expression. Youthful tannins slowly make themselves known toward the close. Long, structured and spicy, the 2015 finishes with a crescendo of tart blue and black fruits, tapering off to notes of subtly sweet spice. As good as this is today, it will only get better over time. That said, it doesn’t appear that this is going to shut down anytime in the immediate future, so it’s certainly worth checking on a bottle or two before forgetting the rest in your cellar. 95 points, Eric Giudo - Vinous
