Tasting Notes

Villa Gresti San Leonardo

Intense ruby red, it has a broad, pervasive nose with lingering notes of tobacco and intriguing hints of vanilla and cocoa powder. The palate finds a perfect balance of softness and acidity with the sweet, elegantly assertive and velvet smooth tannins that are the hallmark of this variety.

Terre di San Leonardo

Brilliant ruby red, with attractive depth and decent length. The aromas are alcohol and fruit-rich when the wine is young, later mellowing with bottle
age into ripe plum fruit layered over a faintly grassy background note. Dry, soft and well-balanced on the palate, it reveals a pleasing bitterish twist in the finish. Good aromatic length.

Vette di san Leonardo

Straw-yellow colour with greenish highlights. This wine has an aromatic fragrance with t ypical hints of white peach, green peppercorn over a pleasing note of sage. The palate is dry, enjoyably acidulous, full-bodied, with great mineral complexity and polish.

Food Sampling

Occelli ® nel fieno Maggengo (in “Maggengo” first-crop hay)

This is a hard-texture cheese left to age for a few months. The wheels are wrapped in the spring hay of mountain pastures, which enhances it with the aromas and fragrances of alpine flowers.

Toma Nostrale. Beppino Occelli

Produced with raw cow’s milk, this is a cheese characteristic of this area. Its rustic traits are guarantee of typical mountain cheeses. Over time its delicate flavour becomes stronger with aromas recalling herbs and meadow flowers. In country cooking it was also used to season and enrich poor dishes such as polenta. A good, even young, Dolcetto is the ideal wine for this type of cheese.
