Described by Gambero Rosso as one of the “fifty wineries that changed Italy,” it is impossible not to be captivated by the sheer beauty of Tenuta San Leonardo. Established in 1770 with the Dolomites serving as an imposing backdrop, the estate includes protected parkland, a stunning villa (headquarters of the counterespionage section of the German high command during WWII), a museum, the original Roman road to Austria and a cellar to rival any Bordeaux chateau. The comparisons with Bordeaux do not end there, for the wine could easily pass as cru classé left bank. The wine that became an Italian classic is made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Carmenere, released only in the best vintages. Terre is the junior sibling, more fruit forward with ripe plum, dark cherry, spice, leather and Trentino’s classic mineral backbone.
