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
The grapes come from a selection of hillside vineyards situated between 500 and 900 metres above sea level.

Winery
The juice underwent cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 14-16oC for fifteen days. There was no malolactic fermentation and the wine was aged on yeasts in stainless steel tanks for four months.

Taste
Pink grapefruit, citrus flowers, white peach and pineapple on the nose, followed by a palate that manages to be both rich and vibrant.
