San Leonardo Vette Sauvignon Blanc 2019


Product Notes

Vette is named for the imposing peaks that rise above its Sauvignon Blanc vineyard, and it is the true height of refreshing crispness and earthy minerality.

You could mistake this very elegant sauvignon blanc for a modern-style Loire wine. Plenty of cassis, lemon zest and some dried sage on the subtle, enticing nose. Then, on the tightly focused, dry palate, there’s plenty of herb and mineral character. Long, very crisp finish. Drink or hold.

From a warm vintage, the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc Vette di San Leonardo is floral and fragrant with decisively tropical themes of green papaya and guava all backed by plenty of yellow rose and honeysuckle. Compared to the 2018 vintage that is a bit thinner, this vintage shows a tad more textural padding and fibre. Fundamentally, the wine remains lean-bodied and tonic, but some of the vintage warmth is transmitted through the fruit. This northern Italian Sauvignon Blanc concludes with a fresh squeeze of citrus or grapefruit.
