“Surely the most successful Bordeaux blend of Northern Italy”
The quote above comes from Jancis Robinson, and is preferable to the many “Sassicaia of the north” comments San Leonardo often attracts. They seem rather disrespectful for a wine that has won fifteen ‘Tre Bicchieri’ awards in fifteen vintages in its own right. San Leonardo doesn’t need to be referenced to great Italian wines; it’s indisputably one of them itself.
Following our recent offer for their wines, Planet of the Grapes is honoured to host a wonderful evening of fine food and tremendous wines with the Marchese Anselmo Guerrieri Gonzaga who currently runs Tenuta San Leonardo on Tuesday 14 March 2017.
The wine line-up for the evening is as follows:

Terre di San Leonardo 2013
Villa Gresti di San Leonardo 2011

We look forward to welcoming you to this wonderful evening of wine, food and friends.
