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
Chardonnay grapes are sourced from two of Tasca d’Almerita’s vineyards: San Francesco, planted in 1985 and Cava Rina Nuova, planted in 1997. The vineyards lie at 530 metres above sea level with a southwest exposure, and the soils are deep, lightly calcareous sand and clay. The grapes were harvested on August 28th.

WINERY
The wine was fermented in 350-litre French oak barrels for fifteen days at 18oC. Following fermentation, it spent a further eight months in barrel, with seventy percent new oak and thirty percent one-year-old, but did not go through malolactic fermentation.
