Ruby red in color. Full and persistent bouquet exhibits the delicate scent of dark berries. Dry with a lingering finish and balanced acidity and tannins. Recommended with grilled and roasted red meats. Particularly excellent with roast game and hard, spicy cheeses.
One of the most famous Nero d’Avola wines of Sicily. From the heart of the island, from gentle hills cultivated with wheat and grapes. As they have been for thousands of years, Regaleali Rosso expresses the style and class of the best-known European wineries. It was the first wine to exalt the expressive and timeless wealth of the noble Sicilian tradition.
|Made from 90% Nero D'Avola, 10% Perricone
|Eight generations of our family are linked to two extraordinary places which are part and parcel of Sicily’s history: the Regaleali estate which now stretches over 500 hectares at the very centre of Sicily; and Villa Tasca (formerly Villa Camastra) in Palermo, heart and soul of the Sicilian capital’s social and cultural life in the late 19th century. Tasca counts have always spearheaded a can-do culture, being the first to introduce any innovations in farming technology and cultivation techniques.
From the late 19th century through the early years of the 20th, Regaleali upgraded and specialised, succeeding in making itself stand out from the under-developed region around to become a model agricultural business. From the mid-20th century onwards, the family firm grew and developed, inventing, producing and distributing the wealth of this land and spreading its values: solidity, consistency and simple hard work. Once established as a wine-growing and -producing concern, the long history of Regaleali’s Rosso del Conte, Nero d’Avola reserve and chestnut-aged Perricone began. And the company’s vocation for exalting Sicily’s culture and land became clear. The immense success of Regaleali Bianco – Sicily’s first true expression of a terroir-linked wine – crowned our achievements.
