  • Score: 90 Vintage 2019 Wine Spectator This creamy, light-bodied white shows classic Sauvignon aromas and flavors of chive blossom, white peach and grapefruit peel, backed by racy acidity and a streak of salty mineral. Drink now. 7,000 cases made, 1,800 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2019 Wine Advocate From a warm vintage, the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc Vette di San Leonardo is floral and fragrant with decisively tropical themes of green papaya and guava all backed by plenty of yellow rose and honeysuckle. Compared to the 2018 vintage that is a bit thinner, this vintage shows a tad more textural padding and fiber. Fundamentally, the wine remains lean-bodied and tonic, but some of the vintage warmth is transmitted through the fruit. This northern Italian Sauvignon Blanc concludes with a fresh squeeze of citrus or grapefruit. Some 98,000 bottles were made. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media The 2019 Vette di San Leonardo is a varietal Sauvignon Blanc that bursts from the glass with a gorgeous display of spiced lemon rinds, white spring florals and crushed stone minerality. This gains volume and depth over time, adding a sweetness that keeps you coming back for more. It’s remarkably pure and precise, with laser-like acidity and a tart citrus tension that offsets its pure and lifted character. Don’t expect to put this super-stimulating and energized Sauvignon in the cellar, because it’s firing on all cylinders already. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 92 Vintage 2018 James Suckling Lots of sliced green apples and mouthwatering gooseberries on this one, and not, thankfully, much in the way of pyrazine character. Good body and oiliness on the palate, but it’s also taut and quite vivacious. Drink now. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 90 Vintage 2018 Wine Spectator A subtly perfumed, floral nose of jasmine and chive blossom draws you into the glass of this creamy, light- to medium-bodied white, where mouthwatering acidity and finely knit flavors of nectarine, lemon curd and stone await. Drink now through 2025. 7,000 cases made, 650 cases imported Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2018 Vinous Media The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Vette di San Leonardo is lifted and precise, showing white flowers, lemony citrus and crushed stone. It’s round and soft, complemented by ripe orchard fruits, yet quickly framed by zesty acids, minerals and a tart tug of citrus that lingers. This is wonderful, pure, fresh and mouthwatering, without overemphasizing the grassy notes that Sauvignon Blanc often shows. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2018 Wine Advocate The Tenuta San Leonardo 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Vette di San Leonardo (with 98,000 bottles made) is a lightweight and fragrant wine with plenty of varietal purity and focus. It shows a luminous, transparent appearance with aromas of green apple, tropical fruit, peach and almond blossom. It closes with a hint of crushed mineral. The wine's very lean and compact mouthfeel would make a refreshing complement to Thai spring rolls or pad Thai with peanut sauce. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 90 Vintage 2017 Vinous Media Pale straw-yellow. Perfumed nose of herb-accented aromas of green fig, tomato leaf and white flowers is in a pungent New Zealand-like style. Bright floral and white pepper notes add lift to the lively but simple citrus fruit flavors. A subtle herbal nuance lends complexity on the long finish but what this wine is really all about is early juicy appeal. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 90 Vintage 2016 Vinous Media Bright straw yellow. Pungent aromas of poached pear, gooseberry, tarragon, chamomile and sage. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering lemon curd, green fig and rosemary flavors and a hint of beeswax. Closes on a herbal note, with firm grip and a suggestion of dried citrus fruits, not to mention plenty of richness and verve. Offers solid, easygoing early-drinking pleasure.
