More info

The vines for the Leone d'Almerita white wine grow in various Tasca d'Almerita vineyards at the Regaleali Estate south of Palermo in central Sicily at altitudes between 500 m and 900 m. An area where exposure, altitude, atmospheric temperature range and ventilation all come together to determine the precious interplay between plant and soil which give wines with freshness, complexity and elegance.

The grapes were manually harvested, carefully sorted, destemmed and pressed followed by fermentation for 15 days. After fermentation the wine was matured in steel vats for 4 months in the lees. The wine is mainly made with the Catarratto variety, blended with Pinot Bianco, Sauvignon Blanc and Gewürztraminer grapes for structure, aroma and acidity.

Longevity 3-5 years.
