2010 San Leonardo, Tenuta San Leonardo, Trentino IGT ** In Wooden Boxes ** (Half Bottle)

Italy Trentino

San Leonardo was not produced in 2009. The 2010 San Leonardo (Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Merlot) is a seamless and polished wine that shows the best of this estate and this vintage. This is a profound and lasting wine with a bouquet that opens to dark fruit tones backed by spice, leather, tobacco and polished river stone. It tastes very young now but offers good material (in terms of richness, acidity and structure) to promise a steady aging evolution ahead. This edition of San Leonardo is gorgeous with a capital G.

Vinous

The 2010 San Leonardo shows a dark and earthy profile, displaying sweet plum and strawberry, with moist soil and mineral notes. Soft textures usher in fleshy ripe fruits over a core of streamlined acidity, while grippy tannins form up and clench the senses toward the close. It's structured and resonating on tension, with tart berries, a twang of citrus and hints of balsamic spice. The 2010 is slightly closed today and tightly wrapped up in its youthful state, making me think of a younger version of the 1999. In this vintage, the vineyards of San Leonardo received a large amount of rain from August through September. Harvest ended up taking place earlier than usual. That said, I don’t see any lack of concentration or freshness here; this wine simply needs more time to unwind. It hardly budged through the 48 hours that this bottle remained open.
