San Leonardo Magnum 2016 Tenuta San Leonardo
San Leonardo Magnum 2016 is a fine wine from Trentino produced by Tenuta San Leonardo. It has become an icon of the Italian wine scene and has been defined by the great international critics as one of the greatest Italian Bordeaux blends.
It is a great wine capable of representing the territory it belongs to, in the style of the great Bordeaux chateaus, obtained by blending wines made from different grapes, vinified and aged separately, in the style of the best Bordeaux wines.
The first harvest took place in 1982 and since then this wine has been produced only in the best vintages. The blend is made of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Carmenère, from vineyards aged between 20 and 50 years old with very low yields.
Deep ruby red in color, the 2016 San Leonardo expresses a complex and balsamic bouquet on the nose, composed of vegetal aromas of moss and green bell pepper, scents of berries, balsamic notes and vanilla. The sip is full, enveloping and balanced between structure and elegance, persistence and great propensity to age.
