Leone d'Almerita Sicilia IGT - Tasca d'Almerita

A very special wine, the result of a skilful blend of Catarratto grapes for the most part, Pinot Bianco, Sauvignon and even a hint of aromatic Traminer. Is it ever possible to conceive a wine as pandering as this one? In the glass it is a beautiful straw yellow colour with clear greenish reflections that immediately bring us back to the cool climate of the hillside vineyards from which the grapes used to produce this wine come. The nose is appropriately broad and varied. It goes from the finer notes of grapefruit and green apple, to the sweeter and more pungent notes of tropical fruits, such as pineapple or mango. The mouthfeel is fresh, pleasantly soft but above all rich. The finish lingers on for a long time, making each sip even more enjoyable.

Tasca d'Almerita is a historic Sicilian winery whose roots go as far back as the nineteenth century. Today, the Tasca family owns almost six hundred hectares of vineyards, divided among the most suitable wine-growing areas in the region, and grouped into five wonderful estates, including Regaleali. This allows the company to offer the market a practically endless range of wines, whose only common denominator is absolute elegance and quality. Each label, from the most important reds to the elegant sparkling wines and products made with skill from the island's many indigenous grape varieties, is always traceable to the same high standard offered by the company. Style and elegance can also be found in the two resorts opened by the company in Sicily and which every year host Tasca d'Almerita brand enthusiasts from all over the world.

  • Wine Enthusiast 91

    A blend of Catarratto, Pinot Bianco, Sauvignon Blanc and Gewürztraminer, this fragrant, savory white has enticing aromas of citrus, spring blossom, pear and tropical fruit. The vibrant, tangy palate doles out juicy grapefruit, white peach and pineapple alongside crisp acidity that leaves a clean, succulent finish. KERIN O’KEEFE
