Leonetti Cellar specializes in Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese, Aglianico, and a Reserve blend in the most exceptional vintages from grapes grown primarily in the deep loess soils of Walla Walla Valley's hillside vineyards.

Cabernet has always been and continues to be our standard bearer and that of the entire Walla Walla Valley. We feel it is suited here perhaps even better than its native home of Bordeaux.

Leonetti Cellar Sangiovese Bottle Preview

Several critics have said we make the finest Sangiovese outside of Tuscany. It is fresh and clean with a lightness of being, all while retaining surprising density and intensity. We simply love the unique way Sangiovese can achieve this. It is our most challenging grape to farm, and our favorite, for this reason.

Merlot is often thought of as Cabernet’s little sister, though we believe strongly that here in the Walla Walla Valley it produces wines capable of standing on their own merits and time has proven this. We grow Merlot on our cooler sites with slightly heavier soils. It is a wine of intensely focused fruit and silky tannins.

Pronounced “olly-on-ico,” this historic grape is planted almost exclusively in the volcanic soils of Southern Italy. Our Italian ancestors, Francesco and Rosalina Leonetti, immigrated to Walla Walla from Calabria, which furthered our intrigue and connectedness to the variety. Leonetti’s Serra Pedace Vineyard, planted on a picturesque hilltop in the southern Walla Walla Valley, beckoned to be named after Frank and Rose’s village. So, of course, we planted Aglianico on its terraces overlooking the valley.

The goal with Leonetti Reserve is simple—to produce the finest wine our Walla Walla Valley vineyards can produce regardless of varietal, though is typically Cabernet Sauvignon dominant. Only the best barrels from each vintage earn the right the become part of the Reserve blend. Its peers hail from the finest vineyards in the world.
