Fattoria San Leonino - Tenimenti Angelini

       

The San Leonino estate consists of 100 hectares, of which 45 are planted with vines and 6 with olive trees. The estate is situated in Castellina in the Chianti territory. It is near a small village founded in the Medieval ages around the Romanic Church of San Leonino. The vineyards are next to the wine cellars, and they benefit from a perfect exposure to the South to South-East, at an altitude of 270-400 meters above the sea. Like on our other two estates, we have carried out a radical program of vineyard re-planting. Now 25 hectares—more than half of the estate--are planted at high density in order to achieve a higher quality of grapes that develop into the best expression of the area.
San Leonino is proud to offer traditional style Chianti Classico wines: San Leonino Chianti Classico and San Leonino Chianti Classico Riserva, carefully aged in Slavonia oak barrels.

With Monsenese cru, San Leonino also offers a more modern interpretation of Chianti Classico. The wine is exclusively produced with grapes from the Monsenese vineyard. Its style is concentrated and elegant and, thanks to a small part of Cabernet Sauvignon which enriches and intensifies the somewhat austere Sangiovese, results in a special and unique Chianti Classico of Castellina. The other great cru of the wine cellar is “Salivolpe”. This is a pure Syrah aged in French oak barrels. It is a wine offers the natural characteristics of the varietal, with the unmistakable mark of the Chianti territory. The cellar also contributes to the pleasure of food by way of an extra virgin olive oil produced by the cold pressing of traditional olive variety of Chianti.
