TASTE
The red wines of Etna have more in common with Barolo than with any other style in between. Relatively pale in colour, with a haunting perfume of red fruit, flowers and mineral, the wine then offers a broad, firmly structured palate of engaging depth and complexity. Unusual and brilliant.

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
Situated on the northern slopes of volcano Etna near Catania, Sicily. The vineyard was planted on terraces on volcanic sediments in 1960 and lies at 750 meters above sealevel.

WINERY
The wine underwent traditional fermentation at 25-30oC, with an eight- day maceration and malolactic fermentation was completed. It then spent eighteen months in oak casks before bottling.
