Falstaff 95 Points: “Funkelndes Rubin mit leichtem Violettschimmer. Sehr klar, fein gezeichnete Frucht, reife, dunkle Johannisbeeren, Sauerkirschen, feine Kakaonoten. Saftig, feine Kräuterwürze, etwas Thymian, feinmaschiges Tannin, entfaltet sich mit großer Eleganz.”

James Suckling 94 Points: “A very elegant, classic Bordeaux blend in the Italian context, but this is actually a special wine in any context, thanks to its subtlety and aromatic complexity. Blackcurrant, black-cherry and mint notes with just a hint of red bell pepper. Finely etched, medium-bodied palate with crisp tannins and lively acidity. The elegant tannins carry the long, cool finish. Drinkable now, but better from 2023.”

Eric Guido, Vinous 94-96 Points: “Deep, dark and sensual, the 2016 Tenuta San Leonardo lifts from the glass with an alluring mix of crushed blackberry and plum. With time it blossoms further to reveal tobacco, brown spice, white smoke and peppery florals. It's velvety and wonderfully textural, yet also energized by a complex mix of stimulating acids and minerals, giving life to ripe fruits, as youthful tannins slowly clamp down. The finish is incredibly long and structured. There’s energy and verve, mixing black raspberry with hints of licorice under an air of purple-tinged flowers. The 2016 has a lot to like, quite primary today but a year away from release. This early preview, which has been bottled for a year now, is full of potential. Very nice!”
