From the bottle:
“This was the first wine produced by Count Tasca d’Almerita on the Regaleali estate. A blend of three Sicilian grapes– Inzolia, Catarratto and Grecanico—this wine is chill-fermented in stainless steel to create a versatile, refreshing and delicious white of true Sicilian character.
Straw-yellow in color with vibrant notes of green apples, peach, pear and grapefruit, Regaleali Bianco is dry and crisp with excellent structure and a superb, fruity finish. Clean and refreshing, Regaleali is great for antipasti, grilled octopus, seafood or garden salads and Asian cuisines.
The island of Sicily has a rich tradition of winemaking and even today Sicily has more vineyards than any other wine region in Italy. The island is best known for its dessert wines, such as Marsala, which make up 90% of the total production but don’t think that is all Sicily has to offer. Winemakers on the island also produce some very nice red and white wines like today’s selection which is a very popular blend of three Sicilian white grapes.
The 2010 Tasca d’Almerita Regaleali Bianco Sicilia begins with light and delicious aromas of apple, peach, pear and some other citrus notes. The wine tastes fresh and clean with pear and apple flavors. This is a really easy to drink summertime quaffer. It also has some nice subtle minerality underneath the fruit. A wine that will pair with lots of different foods.
