Leonetti Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
11 in stock
Leonetti Cabernet Sauvignon 2020 is an expressive and well-structured wine made from 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Malbec, 6% Petit Verdot, and 6% Cabernet Franc. This vintage was skillfully crafted under the expert hand of winemaker Chris Figgins, who was able to bring out the best of the grapes and the climatic conditions of the year.
The visual experience of Leonetti Cabernet Sauvignon is intense: deep, dark crimson to the rim of the glass, that promises a great tasting experience. The aromas of this cabernet come from a blend of dark cherries, blackcurrants, walnuts, licorice, and rose petals. On the palate, it is full and structured, with fine-grained tannins that are pleasingly firm but not excessively chewy. The juicy and mellow fruit appears stealthily underneath, while a creamy finish provides a pleasing and comforting feeling.
Leonetti Cabernet Sauvignon 2020 was aged for 22 months in a combination of new and once-filled French oak barrels and puncheons, and neutral oval botti. This aging process further enhanced its structure and aroma profile, bringing the blend to its peak quality. While it is a great drinking wine on its own, it will certainly benefit some additional years of aging, as suggested by critics – ideally up to 2025 – so those who have a few bottles of this classic Cabernet Sauvignon should be patient and wait for its full potential.
Leonetti Cabernet Sauvignon 2020 is an exquisite experience of aromas and flavors, packed in one perfectly structured and balanced bottle. A great tribute to winemaker Chris Figgins and the quality of grape and the climatic conditions of the vintage.
