Tenuta San Leonardo

Terre di San Leonardo Vigneti delle Dolomiti Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2017

Lovely aromatic with red fruit, pomegranate, some cassis and an undertone of dark, moist earth. A hint of pencil shavings, too.
On the palate this is medium bodied, cool, fresh & juicy, the tannins adding a nice, firm frame. Nice interplay between the sweet & sour red fruit and savoury undertones. Long silky finish with a touch of mint & sage.
Fresher & cooler than 2016, but consistently v. good & brilliant value for a Bordeaux blend! Yum!

Calderara Sottana Etna Bianco Carricante 2019

White grape and a touch of smoke. Chardonnay-like; perhaps less varietal character and overt minerality than I was expecting, but this is still young. Great acid and a touch of sweetness on the finish. I think this just needs a decade. — a month ago

Calderara Sottana Etna Rosso 2016

Terrific!!! Paired with slow cooked chicken on the BBQ. This wine keeps evolving upwards giving me the impression a lot is still to come. Two bottles left, now I need to resist and not touch it for a while to see what it will give on the longer term — 2 months ago

Etna Bianco Carricante Blend 2020

Blend of blend of 60% Carricante, 25% Catarratto, 10% Grecanico and 5% Minnella, aged in French oak for 10 months. Pale lemon with aromas of stone and citrus fruits adding honeysuckle blossom. On the palate flavors of apple, apricot and lemon citrus with creamy vanilla wrapped in generous acidity, long finish ending with wet stone minerality. Nice! — 18 days ago

Tight and young. Lots of promise, but not giving much at the moment. Very mineral and stony. — 23 days ago

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese Blend

Fantastic. Rustic, subtle fruit, earthy somewhat balanced red. Softer texture is what makes it less balanced. But still great. — 6 days ago

All the intense minerality you get from this truly volcanic site. Only problem - way too early to drink, even opened a day earlier. — 3 months ago
