Regaleali Leone 2007

Regaleali Leone 750ml 2007     
Sku: 12024

Experimentation and research, in the vineyards and in the cellar, are expressions of the tendency towards total quality, that we find today in this year’s Leone d’Almerita. The great size of the Regaleali Estate and the crucial overnight thermal excursion of more than 15C makes it possible to choose which varieties to plant, while ensuring the conservation of the aromatic qualities of the grapes. This is how the new Leone d’Almerita was born - fresh, with an aromatic taste and a clear personality, which combines the aromas and fragrances of Catarratto Bianco and the smoothness of Chardonnay.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 88 points (Aug 2008)
The estate’s 2007 Leone is a French-oak aged blend of Catarrato and Chardonnay. The Catarratto gives the wine its aromatics while the Chardonnay provides an additional level of fatness in its fruit. This medium-bodied white possesses excellent poise and balance, but not necessarily more complexity than the Bianco. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2010.
