Winemaker's Notes:

Made from Inzolia, Catarratto and Grecanico

Straw yellow in color with a delicate and persistent bouquet of green apples, peach, pear and citrus, Regaleali Bianco is dry and crisp with excellent structure and a superb fruity finish.

Clean and refreshing, Regaleali is great for antipasti, Asian cuisine, fish, shellfish, octopus salad, and vegetables.

My Notes:

About Regaleali:

Regaleali is a vast Sicilian estate owned by the noble Tasca d'Almerita family since 1837 and best-known for its fine wines. Sicily's viticultural roots are some of the world's most ancient as the area supported vines as far back as five centuries before Christ. The Tasca D'Almerita family runs a model estate that yields approximately 200,000 cases annually. The wines are made in one of the world's most modern wineries built under the direction of Ezio Rivella.

The wines of Regaleali continue to grow in both quantity and quality thanks to the hard work and dedication of Count Giuseppe Tasca over the past 50 years. Today the winery is run by Lucio Tasca and his sons, Giuseppe and Alberto who are increasingly involved in management. Carlo Ferrini, one of Italy's most renown enologists, is makes the wines. In conjunction with the winery, Anna Tasca Lanza - Lucio's sister – also runs a highly regarded cooking school at the estate.
