Producer: Tasca d'Almerita
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: Tue Rosso del Conte, created in 1970, is the fiĢ€rst expression of quality and longevity made in Sicily. Created by Count Giuseppe because it expresses the characteristics of the regaleali Estate. It originates from Perricone and Nero d'Avola, from sapling cultivation at the San Lucio vineyard. It has a long history in which it has evolved and aged using different techniques (chestnut barrels from 1970 to 1987, Slavonic rover barrels until 1991 and finally French rover tenneaus and barriques). It was the first single-vineyard wine in Sicily.
Grape Variety: Nero d'Avola (52%), Perricone (48%)
