For eight generations, the Tasca d’Almerita family has been devoted to Sicily, its land, its unique nature, and its surprising and inimitable resources. Their story began in 1830 with the purchase of Tenuta Regaleali, a green oasis spanning nearly 550 hectares in the center of the island where 8 generations have fostered the past, present, and future of Sicilian winemaking. Regaleali is an unpredictable and breathtaking place, even for the experienced traveler. Luscious hills roll endlessly in several shades of green, with vineyards unlike any other in the world. “Nordic” features in the deep south, like the perceptible diurnal temperature excursions between day and night, the mountainous context, and the quality of the light render this place a winemaking paradise. A mosaic of exposures, mixed soils, and elevations create a proper outdoor viticulture laboratory where 25 red and white varietals are planted across 382 hectares of vines.

Tasting Notes: It is the apex of the aromatic freshness provided by the white grapes cultivated on the high hills, reaching elevations up to 900 meters above sea level: mainly made with the Catarratto variety, blended with Pinot Bianco, Sauvignon Blanc and Traminer grapes for structure, aroma, and acidity. The lion is a symbol of family history.
