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
Nozzo d’Oro was originally created by Count Guiseppe as a present for his wife on their golden wedding anniversary. The fruit is sourced from two vineyards: the Inzolia comes from Barbabietole, planted in 1972, and the Sauvignon from Santa Tea, planted in 2001. The vineyards have a southwest exposure; the Inzolia is planted on calcareous clay, and the Sauvignon on fine sandstone. The grapes were harvested over a period of roughly four weeks.

Winery
Following cold maceration of the Sauvignon, fermentation in stainless steel tanks lasted for fifteen days at 16-18oC; malolactic fermentation was blocked. The wine was aged on lees for four to five months in stainless steel tanks before bottling, and six months in bottle before release.

Taste
With apple, peach, melon and honey aromas, and a sleek, well-defined palate, this is crisp and refreshing, yet with an underlying power.
