TENUTA SAN LEONARDO
Few other Italian wineries have managed to protect and enhance their territory in the style of the great French château, as Tenuta San Leonardo in Trentino has managed to do. A magical place, in the heart of Vallagarina, where traces of vine cultivation are lost in time, dating back to a thousand years ago. A model winery, consisting of hundreds of hectares of land, which house about thirty hectares cultivated with varieties now become traditional: cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, carmenère, petit verdot and merlot, and still riesling and sauvignon blanc. Owned by the Guerrieri Gonzaga family, Tenuta San Leonardo has over the years signed some of the most iconic wines not only of Trentino, but of all Italy. The homonymous label, the "San Leonardo", is in fact one of the most famous and awarded Bordelais cuts of the Peninsula: a wine of incredible elegance and longevity, born in 1982 and since then produced only in the most important vintages. To the vineyards owned, today are added another ten hectares of vineyards for rent, and among the rows is constantly pursued the utmost respect for the environment and the ecosystem. In the winery, in a sort of ideal continuity with Giacomo Tachis, since 1999 the enological signature is that of the famous enologist Carlo Ferrini, who carefully and rigorously supervises all the production steps. To coordinate everything and everyone, there is then the insatiable and tireless passion of the Marquis Carlo Guerrieri Gonzaga, who helped by his son Anselmo and the historical and irreplaceable right-hand man Luigi Tinelli, scrupulously follows every single detail. The result of the sum of all that is given by wines that stand out for finesse and elegance, vibrant and decisive reds and whites, capable of literally exciting. From "San Leonardo" to sister labels, every bottle that comes out of the estate of Borghetto all'Adige contains the truest and best essence of a territory capable of giving enormous wine satisfactions.
