Wine tasting notes

Intense lemon-green in color, Leone offers lovely aromas of pink grapefruit, apple, white peach, and pineapple. Fruity with balanced acidity.

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2013) - 87 pts

Wine Advocate # 212. May 2014. Reviewer : Monica Larner - The delicious 2013 Leone d?Almerita is a well-made, pure white wine with bright notes of lemon zest, crushed mineral, lime, kiwi and honey. It?s a great fall back wine for appetizers or to serve during happy hour.


Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2012) - 89 pts

Mar/Apr 14. By Ian D'Agata. Bright straw. Fresh, crisp aromas of quince, yellow melon, fig and orange peel, plus a hint of white flowers. Easygoing and uncomplicated, offering straightforward fresh citrus and floral flavors. Finishes vibrant and long, with nice focus and intensity. A very well made wine that's hard to argue with, though I liked older versions better, as they were less dominated by the sauvignon blanc. I also would probably have never guessed it was a Sicilian wine had I tasted it blind.


Wine Spectator (2013) - 88 pts

Web Only 2014 - Juicy pear and pineapple flavors mix in this light-bodied, mouthwatering white, with hints of white peach and ginger underscored by a note of chalky minerality that holds sway on the finish. Catarratto, Pinot Bianco, Sauvignon and Traminer Aromatico.


Wine Enthusiast (2011) - 87 pts

This white blend is the quintessential seafood wine. It offers citrus, stone fruit, crushed mineral and pretty flower nuances. — M.L. (3/1/2013)
