Winemaker's Notes

Brilliant ruby red, with attractive depth and decent length. The aromas are alcohol and fruit-rich when the wine is young, later mellowing with bottle age into ripe plum fruit layered over a faintly grassy background note. Dry, soft and well-balanced on the palate, it reveal a pleasing bitter twist in the finish. good aromatic length. A classic food wine with rice and pasta in tomato or meat sauces, and filled pasta, as well as grilled meats, poultry, white meats and soft cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2008 Terre di San Leonardo is a gorgeous entry-level wine. Dark cherries, plums, herbs, leather, spices and minerals are some of the many notes that take shape in the glass. Floral notes add lift and perfume on the finish. This is a fabulous wine for the money. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018."

On their release, the former captives decided to give thanks to the patron saint of prisoners, Saint Leonard, by erecting a chapel.
