RRP: $25.00 (You save $5.05)

Product Description

"Notes of fresh tarragon and chive blossom lead to passion fruit, ginger and stone flavors in this zesty, lip-smacking white, with a minerally finish. Drink now through 2018." - Wine Spectator

"Straw-yellow colour with greenish highlights. This wine has an aromatic fragrance with t ypical hints of white peach, green peppercorn over a pleasing note of sage. The palate is dry, enjoyably acidulous, full-bodied, with great mineral complexity and polish." - Winery

100% Sauvignon Blanc aged on the yeasts in stainless steel for 5 months with frequent batonnage, cold-stabilisation, clarification, filtration and bottling.

Located in the Vallagrina, an area carved out by the Adige river, Tenuta San Leonardo enjoys a temperate climate that benefi ts from the Ora del Garda wind. Once a medieval fi ef that spanned over 740 acres, Tenuta San Leonardo has been producing wine for centuries. Under the ownership of the Guerrieri Gonzaga family since the mid-18th century, this estate has often been the setting of historical events, from the marriage of Longbard kings to the negotiation of the WWI armistice with Austria.

Today, San Leonardo has approximately 50 acres of vineyards planted with international varietals that thrive in the varied microclimates of the estate. The majority of the vineyards are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, but Carmenere, Cabernet Franc and Merlot are also abundant. Cultivation is focused on low yields and highly concentrated grapes. The resulting wines have a great depth, concentration and an aristocratic finesse that can go toe-to-toe against the world's finest Bordeaux blends.
