Terre di San Leonardo red is born in the beautiful Vallagarina area. Tenuta San Leonardo is a vast estate that manages a vineyard of some 40 hectares, cultivated mainly with Bordeaux varieties and other international white grape varieties. The wine comes from a blend characterized by a majority percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, supplemented by Merlot and a small balance of Carménère. At the end of the harvest, the grapes are vinified separately by grape variety, with spontaneous fermentation in concrete tanks and maceration on the skins lasting 2 to 3 weeks, with frequent pumping-over and délestage. The wine matures 80 percent in concrete tanks and 20 percent in French oak barrels and is aged for 6 months in bottles before release.
