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
Cygnus is sourced from low-yielding vines on the Regaleali Estate, grown on sandy clay soil and harvested during September and October.

WINERY
The wine underwent traditional fermentation at 28oC with fourteen days’ maceration. It was then aged for fourteen months in 225-litre Allier and Tronçais oak barriques, with thirty percent new and the remainder one year old.
