Bright lemon-green in color, Leone offers aromas of pink grapefruit, orange blossom, white peach, and pineapple. On the palate, it is fruit forward and rich with good acidity and a pleasant finish. Pair this wine with calamari fritti, remoulades, roasted chicken, or migas.

50% Catarratto, 27% Pinot Bianco, 19% Sauvignon Blanc, 4% Gewuerztraminer. The island of Sicily is home to the Tasca d'Almerita family of estates: Regaleali, Capofaro, and Whitaker. The Regaleali estate is at the heart of the family's wine production and also serves as an escape from the bustle of the coastal capital of Palermo. In 2002, the family purchased vineyards on the small island of Salina to create Tenuta Capofaro, which produces elegant sweet wines with high acidity yet fresh balance throughout. The Whitaker estate consists of vineyards originally planted by the English family of the same name in the 19th century. While the history of Tasca d'Almerita dates back to the 19th century, it was Count Giuseppe Tasca who started a new era for the winery and the Sicilian wine business in the late 1950s, devoting himself to the promotion of Sicilian wines and introducing a new business model based on quality and innovation rather than quantity and bulk production. He invented the winery's two flagship wines: Rosso del Conte and Nozze d'Oro.
