For eight generations, the Tasca d’Almerita family has been devoted to Sicily, its land, its unique nature, and its surprising and inimitable resources. Their story began in 1830 with the purchase of Tenuta Regaleali, a green oasis spanning nearly 550 hectares in the center of the island where 8 generations have fostered the past, present, and future of Sicilian winemaking. Regaleali is an unpredictable and breathtaking place, even for the experienced traveler. Luscious hills roll endlessly in several shades of green, with vineyards unlike any other in the world. “Nordic” features in the deep south, like the perceptible diurnal temperature excursions between day and night, the mountainous context, and the quality of the light render this place a winemaking paradise. A mosaic of exposures, mixed soils, and elevations create a proper outdoor viticulture laboratory where 25 red and white varietals are planted across 382 hectares of vines.

Tasting Notes: "Camastra" - red dry wine from the island of Sicily. The name of the wine comes from the original name of the family villa Tasca. The wine is made from a combination of indigenous and international grape varieties - Nero d'Avola and Merlot. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out at a temperature of 28 ° C lasts 14 days maceration. This is followed by malolactic fermentation and aging for 14 months in French oak barrels of 225 liters, of which 30% - a new, and then another 4 months the wine is aged in the bottle.
