The Marchesi Guerrieri Gonzaga family have owned San Leonardo for three hundred years, bringing it from vinous obscurity to the forefront of Italian winemaking. Marchese Carlo Guerrieri Gonzaga, the owner of San Leonardo collaborated with legendary consultant Giacomo Tachis at Tenuta San Guido, the birthplace of Sassicaia, in the 1960s. Tachis later joined San Leonardo. In 2000, world-renowned consultant Carlo Ferrini took the reins, driving the quality of the wines to even greater heights. Additionally, San Leonardo completed its organic conversion in 2015, emphasizing its commitment to sustainable practices.

Jancis Robinson has noted that each San Leonardo vintage is “beautifully low- key and like the most refined red bordeaux imaginable,” and the Bordeaux- style Villa Gresti and Terre blends illustrate this. 90% Merlot, the Villa Gresti showcases the sweet, yet assertive and smooth tannins characteristic of Merlots. The Terre is only 40% Merlot, blended with 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Carmenère.
