Tenuta San Leonardo
Tenuta San Leonardo stands on a particular historic site, with the estate mentioned as the location for a royal wedding as far back as 588AD. The first vines were planted here around 1215, when a monastery was established in the area.
Nowadays, the team preside over 25 hectares of vines, situated around 150-200 metres above sea level. Soils are nutrient-poor but have good natural drainage, ensuring the production of clean, concentrated fruit which expresses true varietal flavour as well as capturing the essence of this truly historic terroirs.
