Terre, a Bordeaux blend like San Leonardo and from the same terroir, follows in the footsteps of its “elder brother,” here with remarkable crispness and enviable balance.
The Terre di San Leonardo is an accessible and food-friendly blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carménère grapes selected from across the San Leonardo estate. Brilliant ruby red, the aromas are fruit-rich when the wine is young, later mellowing with bottle age into ripe plum fruit layered over a faintly grassy background note. Dry, soft and well-balanced on the palate it reveals a pleasing bitter twist in the finish and good aromatic length.
Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Carmenère, 10% Merlot
Spontaneous 15/18 day fermentation in small concrete vats with periodic pumpovers and délestage
