Italy San Leonardo. Tenuta San Leonardo Bottles Red 1997
An intense garnet tinted ruby color, it expresses itself with a remarkable aroma intensity, which goes from green peppers to little red-berries on a vanilla background. On the palate it is full-bodied, warm and round with a very long and intense aromatic finish. Perfect for roasted lamb with potatoes, red meat dishes, poultry, roasts, braised or stewed meats, game and mature cheeses.
Editorial Reviews for Italy San Leonardo. Tenuta San Leonardo Bottles Red
Earthy, lots of pepper, peppery herb, lots of green tomato, ripe and unripe at the same time, quite minty. Soft, lots of ripe fruit, easy, a bit meaty, dark fruit, cola, nice spice, more oak present, a bit short. Black currant, nice smooth wine, juicy complex and pleasant. Slightly corked and thus not really representative but showing obvious appeal. NR
