Product Notes

VINE TYPE
The result of a meticulous assemblage of Tenuta San Leonardo’s grapes.

AGE OF THE VINES
From 5 to 25 years.

YIELD PER HECTARE
70/80 quintals/hectare

HARVEST PERIOD
The grapes are picked when perfectly ripe during the months of September and October.

VINIFICATION
Grapes are de-stemmed and soft-crushed, with minimal use of sulphur dioxide. The juice ferments and macerates on the skins for a long period of time, during which the cap is punched down daily. The must is cold clarified by allowing the lees to settle.

MATURATION
80% aged for 18 months in big Slavonian oak barrels and the remaining 20% in French barriques for at least 6 months.

BOTTLE AGEING
For at least six months before release onto the market.

SENSORY ANALYSIS
Brilliant ruby red, with attractive depth and decent length. The aromas are alcohol and 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. Good aromatic length.

FOOD MATCHES
A classic food wine with rice and pasta in tomato or meat sauces; filled pasta, as well as grilled meats, poultry, white meats and soft cheeses.

SERVING TEMPERATURE
8-12°C.

AGEING POTENTIAL
5 years or more.

ALCOHOL
12.5%-13%.

FORMATS
Available in 750ml bottles and 1.5L magnums
