Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère & Merlot. This is San Leonardo’s junior sibling, from the same terroir.
80% aged for 18 months in big Slovenian oak barrels and the remaining 20% in French barriques for at least 6 months."
San Leonardo is exceptional in so many ways. For a start it produces wine almost in a vacuum, north west of Verona towards Lake Garda, well outside the Valpolicella zone, and much further down the Adige valley from the vineyards that supply the sparkling wine of Trento.
Although it's an ancient estate, based on a tenth-century church, it did not produce wine until the late twentieth century. Marchese Carlo Guerreri Gonzago studied oenology in Lausanne in the late 1950s and then worked at the Tuscan estate that produces Sassicaia, Italy's prototype Supertuscan Cabernet. Under the influence of Sassicaia's creator, Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, Carlo was keen to see whether similar bordelais subtlety could also be coaxed out of the infertile clay-limestone benchlands of his wife's estate in Trentino."
