Another year has gone and we are now back with the tasting made by the most important wine experts. We start this little journey with Mr. J. Suckling. He has tasted Leuta wines for te second year and we are getting good reviews and good points. From the last tasting, done in 2013, all our wines has improved the ratings, we are not at the top of the iceberg yet, but we are definitely working our way up.

LEUTA TOSCANA LEUTA NAUTILUS SINGLE BARREL SELECT

Italy – Tuscany – 2011  92

A beautiful, juicy red with plum, chocolate and berry character. Full and velvety-textured. Savory finish. I like the almost salty undertone to the ripe-cherry character.

LEUTA TOSCANA TAU
Italy – Tuscany – 2011  92

A wonderfully floral bouquet of roses and lavender with hints of raspberries. A juicy, succulent full body enveloped by velvety tannins before a sophisticated finish. The use of barrique comes across nicely but not too much. A very well-made, sexy wine.

LEUTA CORTONA SYRAH 0,618
Italy – Tuscany – 2011  92

Bing cherry, strawberry preserve, caramel, salted chocolate, roasted espresso, spice, custard, camp fire and incense. Full-bodied, modern style.

LEUTA CORTONA MERLOT 1618
Italy – Tuscany – 2009  92

Richly perfumed with cherry cola, herbs and spices. Medium-bodied with a silky texture, a generous oak frame and a chewy tannin finish.

Solitario di Leuta Sangiovese
Italy – Tuscany – 2010  91

Zesty nose of braised beef, cherry flambé and shaved chocolate. A dynamic medium-bodied wine with nice grip, structure and balance.

LEUTA CABERNET FRANC TOSCANA 2618
Italy – Tuscany – 2011  90

A ripe and slightly raisiny red with refined tannins and a juicy finish. More Loire-style than Bordeaux.
