Intense straw yellow in color with green hues, Leone offers a lovely, aromatic bouquet of pink grapefruit, apple, white peach, and pineapple. Fruity with balanced acidity, Leone is best enjoyed well chilled with antipasti, fried calamari, spaghetti with clams, roasted white meats, and vegetables. Also pairs nicely with Thai cuisine.

Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Leone d'Almerita (80% Catarratto, 20% Chardonnay) is riper and softer than the Bianco. The aromatic profile recalls Sauvignon in its bright, high-toned notes, and the finish is particularly refined. This is another pretty wine from Tasca. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2012.

Wine EnthusiastFrom vineyards ranging from 700 to 900 meters above sea level, Tasca's blend of Catarratto and Chardonnay offers fluid aromas of white flower, brimstone and stone fruit. It's an easy and refreshing wine that would pair perfectly with fried calamari.
