About San Leonardo
Trentino's San Leonardo is dubbed the Sassicaia of Northern Italy for a good reason; San Leonardo’s owner, Marchese Carlo Guerrieri Gonzaga, spent time at Tenuta San Guido (the producer of Sassicaia) in the 1960s, and even employed the same consultant, the legendary Giacomo Tachis, as the fabled estate.
His incomparable pedigree extends way beyond the training with Tachis. Having inspired by the greatest minds of both Bordeaux and Italian winemaking, Gonzaga also worked under the late Émile Peynaud, the world's most influential enologist, before returning to his family's estate. Now taking charge of the ancestral property, he works closely with the fabled Italian winemaker Carlo Ferrini, the forger of multiple 100 point scores at Tenuta Giodo, who occupies a consulting role at San Leonardo.
