      Regaleali “Le Rose” Nerello Terre Siciliane IGT 2018

      The Regaleali estate is home to countless lush roses from all over the world. This fragrant Rosato is a homage to the roses of Regaleali. Brilliant colour, fruity fragrance of strawberries, cherries and mulberries, rich taste, fresh and of pleasant sweetness. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Bright, intense dark orange with a crimson touch. The nose shows an intense cherry scent, then blueberries and rose hips, fine spice in the aftertaste. On the palate it is exciting and elegant with structure, good length with balanced body, it is fun". Falstaff

      "Made entirely with native Sicilian grape Nerello Mascalese, this fresh, fragrant wine opens with aromas of rose petal, wild red berry and Mediterranean scrub. Bright and savory, the palate recalls the nose, doling out raspberry, red cherry and a hint of citrus alongside tangy acidity." Wine Enthusiast

      "Vivid medium-dark pink. Fresh herbs and strawberry on the nose and in the mouth. Finishes dense and savory, with a youthfully chewy tannic bite. This is actually quite good and more flavorful than some other past vintages of Regaleli Rosés." Antonio Galloni

Then fresh and juicy, with laser beam-like acidity to the lime and lemon flavors complicated by hints of mint. Finishes long and fresh with a nicely persistent bittersweet element. I’d personally like less banana and pineapple in my Catarratto, but as long as these presences are relatively in the background, it’s fine." Vinous

    About the winemakers
    Tasca d'Almerita
    Sicily
    Tasca d'Almerita

    The historical development of Sicily as an important wine region is inseparable from Tasca d'Almerita connected. For many years, the wines of the Tasca family vineyard, founded in the first half of the 19th century in the heart of the island, just 90 kilometres southeast of Palermo in the tiny municipality of Sclafani Bagni, have been among the great classics. Winegrowing on the island has not only been decisively influenced by the famous and tradition-conscious wine dynasty, but has also been advanced with great foresight. The crescences of the magnificent Regaleali winery, through whose gardens the composer and playwright Richard Wagner already walked, are simply magnificent. The drops exported to four continents from the house of Tasca d'Almerita can undoubtedly compete with other prominent names on the domestic and international wine scene.

    The company, which has Gambero Rossobeen named Winery of the Year in 2012 and has almost 500 hectares of vines, is managed by Lucio Tasca d'Almerita as well as his sons Giuseppe and Alberto, who also work with great intuition and energy. It was thanks to Ignazio Miceli, Head of Marketing, that the wines of the most beautiful winery on the island became famous all over the world. For example, the magnificent Rosso del Conte, introduced in 1970, has set new standards for Sicilian red wines. This top-quality wine was also one of the first wines from the Leopard Island to conquer the American market. The synergies between the Tasca family, Miceli and the Palermo-born founder and chairman of the US importer Winebow Group, Leonardo LoCascio, led to Sicily's top crops shining brightly beyond the country's borders.

    In addition to its headquarters, the Tenuta di Regaleali, the Azienda Tasca d'Almerita with the goods Tascante (Etna region), Whitaker (joint venture on the west coast), Sallier de La Tour (northwest) and Capofaro (Aeolian island of Salina) via four further production sites. The wine house, always characterised by good ideas and careful research, and advised by the prominent oenologist Carlo Ferrini, deserves the credit for producing not only autochthonous grape varieties but also some great Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay wines, which convincingly reflect the typical character of Sicily. The family, which since the turn of the millennium, with the arrival of the winemaker from Tuscany, had preferred local varieties more than ever, had made the first clone selections in their vineyards and had already planted international varieties before all the other winegrowing companies on the island. SUPERIORE.DE

    "The only property on the island that deserves to be compared to a large Bordeaux château is the house of Count Tasca ... The average quality of the range of labels is remarkable."Gambero Rosso
