Tenuta Regaleali ~ A Hidden Viticultural Oasis in the Heart of Sicily

This week we will be tasting wines from Tenuta Regaleali Estate .  Tenuta Regaleali is a renowned wine estate located in the heart of Sicily, Italy. Established in 1830, it is owned and operated by the Tasca d'Almerita family, one of the most prestigious wine-producing families in Italy. The estate spans approximately about 3,000 acres and is situated in the highlands of the Sicilian interior, offering a unique terroir that contributes to the distinctiveness of its wines.

Before moving south to Sicily, we’ll start off with a nice bubbly from a Veneto.  Nino Franco Rustico Prosecco is a crisp and refreshing sparkling wine known for its lively bubbles and bright, fruity flavors. It typically features notes of green apple, pear, and citrus, with a hint of floral aromas. The palate is light and effervescent, making it a delightful choice for celebrations or as an aperitif.

Tenuta Regaleali Le Rose is a vibrant Sicilian rosé that showcases a beautiful pale pink color. It offers a bouquet of fresh red berries, such as strawberry and raspberry, along with delicate floral notes. On the palate, it is dry, crisp, and well-balanced, with a refreshing acidity that makes it perfect for pairing with light dishes or enjoying on a sunny day.

Tenuta Regaleali Buonsenso is an Italian wine that emphasizes good taste and sensibility, reflecting its name which means "good sense." Elegant, fi­ne, with fragrant bouquet of pink grapefruit, yellow peach, green tea, in the mouth it expresses a fresh acidity that makes it long-lasting and rich on the palate

Tenuta Regaleali Lamuri, produced by Tasca d'Almerita, is a red wine made from 100% Nero d'Avola grapes. It is characterized by its rich and robust profile, offering aromas of dark berries, plum, and a hint of spice. On the palate, it is full-bodied with velvety tannins and flavors of black cherry, licorice, and a touch of earthy undertones. This wine pairs well with hearty dishes and grilled meats.

Tenuta Regaleali is a symbol of Sicilian viticulture, combining a deep respect for tradition with a forward-thinking approach to winemaking. The estate's dedication to quality, sustainability, and hospitality makes it a standout destination for wine enthusiasts. We hope you'll join us to experience their exceptional wines!
