TASTE
Mandarin-scented, spicy, extremely elegant Malvasia from the small volcanic island of Salina, north of Sicily.

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
Tasca’s Capofaro estate is on Salina, one of the Aeolian Islands. The vineyard is just over five hectares of volcanic soil to which Malvasia has proved itself particularly well suited.

WINERY
The grapes were dried on mats and then fermented in stainless steel. The wine was aged in tank for six months with no malolactic before bottling.
