"The 2015 San Leonardo is a classic in the
making. The bouquet is wonderfully perfumed with peppery florals, mixing
tart cherry and blueberry with white smoke, hints of graphite and shaved
cedar. Silky textures race across a core of juicy acids and minerals,
making for a ripe yet cool-toned and pleasurably tactile expression.
Youthful tannins slowly make themselves known toward the close. Long,
structured and spicy, the 2015 finishes with a crescendo of tart blue and
black fruits, tapering off to notes of subtly sweet spice. As good as
this is today, it will only get better over time. That said, it doesn't
appear that this is going to shut down anytime in the immediate future,
so it's certainly worth checking on a bottle or two before forgetting the
rest in your cellar."
95 points, Eric Guido - Vinous
"From a palpably riper vintage than the 2014 tasted yesterday, but
still with San Leonardo's trademark restraint. This is very
youthful and clearly has the structure underneath to go quite a
distance. Great freshness and bite, but not at all skinny.
Much more aerienne than the average red Bordeaux - on which it was
originally modelled. Very long indeed."
17.5+/20, Jancis Robinson MW
