TASTE
Ruby-red in colour, this pure Cabernet has aromas of wild berries, vanilla, black pepper, tobacco, cinnamon, mint and sage. Rich ripe fruit flavours on the elegant, balanced palate.

PRODUCER
The large Regaleali estate, high in the central Sicilian hills, has been in the hands of the noble Tasca family since 1830. Ever since, the property has been run according to the best principles of the agricultural aristocracy: with one eye firmly on quality, and the other on experimentation. Tasca’s large range is the product of the family’s most successful innovations, including short pruning for lower yields, the championing of local Inzolia and Nero d’Avola vines, the introduction of French varieties, and the use of barrique and temperature control. Even now, forty grape varieties from all over Europe are planted just for experimental purposes, with the possibility of making the grade in the future. However, there is already plenty on offer in this singularly accomplished range of Sicilian wines.

VINEYARD
Cabernet Sauvignon fruit is sourced from the San Francesco vineyard 60 miles southeast of Palermo, planted in 1985. The vineyards lies at 550 metres above sea level with a south and southwest exposure; the soil is deep, slightly calcareous clay. The grapes were harvested on October 5th.

WINERY
The wine underwent traditional fermentation at 20-28oC, with a twenty- day maceration. It then spent eighteen months in new Allier and Tronçais barriques before bottling.
