60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Carmenère & 10% Merlot


Winery notes (2011 Vintage)
"A powerful yet elegant red, San Leonardo is a skillful blend of wines from different grapes that are fermented and aged separately: Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Merlot. Before bottling, the precise proportions are decided only after rigorous tasting of samples, barrique by barrique.

Intense ruby red with garnet highlights. 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."


93/100 Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate (2011 Vintage)
"The 2011 San Leonardo (Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Merlot) is another landmark edition of this celebrated wine. This warm vintage has shaped a slightly more opulent and succulent expression with dark fruit nuances of blackberry and Morello cherry. The bouquet is intense and exuberant. Delicate layers of spice, leather and tobacco give volume at the back. Like most past vintages of San Leonardo, this wine is difficult to taste at such a young age. It is built to last and it would be a horrible shame to pull the cork before the wine has reached its prime. For that, I suggest another ten years of cellar aging (at a minimum)."


92/100 Jeannie Cholee MW (2011 Vintage)
"A beautiful symphony of flavors with cassis, cedar and tobacco notes. The tannins are beautifully handled with 13.5% alcohol. Still young and vibrant, but ready to enjoy now. The first vintage was in 1982. This wine is always a blend of 60% Cabernet, 30% Carmenere and 10% Merlot and aged for 2 years in barriques."
