Wine Advocate Review
The Tenuta San Leonardo 2014 San Leonardo has fleshed out nicely since I tasted the wine in a preview capacity a few years back. The cool, humid vintage is associated with a tendency toward greener flavors and thinner wines in many of its peers. You get some of that here; however, the wine shows a bouquet that has expanded far beyond those youthful parameters to show dark cherry, cassis, toasted nut and mountain herb. The tannins are polished but firm, and there's just enough textural snap or elasticity to hope for a long and healthy cellar aging. As usual with Tenuta San Leonardo, you need to have patience before opening this wine. Drink 2023-2040.
An intense garnet tinted ruby color, it expresses itself with a remarkable aroma intensity, which goes from green peppers to little red-berries on a vanilla background. On the palate it is full-bodied, warm and round with a very long and intense aromatic finish. Perfect for roasted lamb with potatoes, red meat dishes, poultry, roasts, braised or stewed meats, game and mature cheeses.
60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot.
