Winemaker's Notes:

Bright, straw yellow with green reflections. This wine has a bouquet of pink grapefruit, citrus flowers, white peach, and pineapple. There is great personality here - it is pleasantly soft, yet richly intense and crispy.

About Tasca d'Almerita:

It was 1830 when brothers Lucio and Carmelo Mastrogiovanni Tasca bought the former stronghold of Regaleali, which lies on the borderline of the provinces of Palermo and Caltanissetta and in the heart of Sicily. Much has changed since then: the introduction of the use of espalier, the complete restructuring of the cellars, the use of finished barrels for ageing, and the complete renovation of the equipment park - today the most vanguard of Europe - only to mention a few innovations. However, what has never changed in the 180 years of the wineries history is the love of the land, the respect for a noble and ancient art: wine, and the cultivation of the grape in all of its phases. To practice viticulture for many generations means first of all to have clearly understood and interpreted the value and character of this magnificent material above that of the grape, Europe's fruit of life. It is with pride that the Tasca d'Almerita family carries the traditions of yesterday into the future. And it is with the spirit of innovation that the Tasca d'Almerita family faces the challenges of tomorrow already today.
