Tenuta San Leonardo
Creator of one of Italy’s best Bordeaux-style blends, Tenuta San Leonardo is a prestigious and highly regarded estate in the heart of Vallagarina in the southernmost corner of Trentino.
The 300 hectare estate sits between the villages of Masi and Borghetto on the banks of the Adige River and has been run by the aristocratic Guerrieri Gonzaga family since the 18th century.
The vineyards, some 20 hectares, have fairly dry and loose gravelly soils, ideal for producing the three main varietals that make up the San Leonardo blend; Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The vines face north-south at between 150 and 200 meters above sea level and enjoy a temperate climate cooled by the Orca del Garda wind. The Cabernet Franc, which makes up 30% of the San Leonardo blend is much less green than usual on account of this unique terroir, and gives the wine its longevity.
The San Leonardo blend, matured in French barriques, is a powerful yet elegant wine that is full bodied with a wonderful depth of flavour.
