Tasca d'Almerita 'Leone d'Almerita'
60% Catarratto, 25% Chardonnay, 15% Gewurztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc
Following on from the very popular 2010.
Tasca d'Almerita are on top form and this is a particularly impressive white. Perfumed on the nose, quite flowery with citrus and white peach. Good weight on the palate, tangy with real depth, greengage, white peach, citrus too hints of mandarin as well, with tangy fresh acidity, long and complex. Really very attractive and great with seafood of course, lots of character and a real star wine. The 2011 is very similar to the 2010, just tasting at present that little bit fresher and crisper.
