San Leonardo

  • Italie


The history of Tenuta San Leonardo is based on a centuries-old tradition. In 1894, Marquis Tullo Guerrieri Gonzaga married Gemma de Gresti, whose family had owned the San Leonardo estate for two centuries. The Guerrieri Gonzagua family settled in the Trentino region of Italy, a wine region nestled between the Valpolicella in the south and the Alto-Adige in the north. In 1970, Tullo's grandson, Carlo Guerrieri Gonzagua, took over the estate, continuing the family's wine-making adventure. With a vineyard of 25 hectares cultivated in organic farming since 2015 the identity of Tenuta San Leonard is strong. It is built around the elegance of Carmenere, a rustic grape variety that has always been present on the land of Tenuta San Leonardo. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot also complement the estate's wines and are blended to produce one of Tenuta San Leonardo's main red wines: San Leonardo. The help of two Italian oenologists, Giacomo Tachis, a former collaborator of Professor Emile Peynaud, and Carlo Ferrini, one of the most famous Italian winemaking consultants, has helped to affirm the style and personality of Tenuta San Leonardo wines. They express with precision the influence of their particular terroir. Fresh in their youth, Tenuta San Leonardo wines evolve into a fuller and more opulent style over the years. Today they are considered as great classics of Trentino wines.
