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.

Vineyard
This flagship wine comes from a selection of top parcels at the Regaleali estate, which share a slightly calcareous clay soil and south-east exposure. The grapes were harvested on October 5th.

Winery
Traditional red fermentation took place at 20-28oC with a twenty-day maceration. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged for eighteen months in new French oak (Allier and Tronçais).

Taste
An extremely complex, intense bouquet of wild berries, walnuts, cinnamon and tobacco leads to a richly concentrated, mouthfilling palate that combines thrilling old-vine depth with a certain deftness and elegance.

Press
“This wine is gorgeous on all fronts. The results are elaborate and opulent, starting with a full throttle bouquet of dark fruit and exotic spice. The quality of fruit is sweet, plush and recalls the sunny climate of Sicily. But there is excellent complexity here with grilled herb, dark mineral and licorice. The tannins are beautifully managed and sweet. It offers a delicious taste of Sicily.” – 94 points, The Wine Advocate, December 2015
