    Winemaker's Notes:

    Bright, straw yellow with green reflections. This wine has a bouquet of pink grapefruit, citrus flowers, white peach, and pineapple. There is great personality here - it is pleasantly soft, yet richly intense and crispy.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Tasca's 2011 Leone d'Almerita wraps around the palate with juicy apricots, peaches, flowers and spices. This intriguing blend incorporates Catarratto, Pinot Bianco, Sauvignon Blanc and a dollop of Gewurztraminer. The aromatic varieties add an upper register that is highly appealing. I can't say the Leone is identifiably Sicilian, but it is absolutely delicious, and easily one of the very best whites in what has proven to be an uneven vintage. This is a great showing from Tasca.

    What a wonderful wine to bring me out of the winter doldrums! A subtle nose of honeysuckle, apricot, and white peach with something mineral to temper it entices you to your first sip. Juicy acidity lures you to sip after sip until very suddenly until your class is gone! Just barely off dry with lots of fruity deliciousness. This one is going into my spring— summer rotation.
