Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby-red in color, this wine offers enticing aromas of Marasca cherries and herbs with undertones of vanilla and tobacco. On the palate, silky tannins and a rich body culminate in a long, flavorful finish.

Pair this wine with grilled steaks, Bordelaise sauces, rack of lamb, and rumaki.

James Suckling
This has a crazy nose with notes of dried bay leaf, Thai basil, sage and thyme. Beneath the herbs are red peppers, blackcurrants, crushed stones, violets and blueberries. The blue-fruit and fascinating, herbal flavors permeate through layered tannins and mineral acidity right up to the long, bright finish. Once again, this breaks the boundaries for nero d’avola. Drink now or hold.
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This is the 39th edition of this iconic red wine from Sicily. The 2014 Sicilia Contea di Sclafani Rosso del Conte Tenuta Regaleali reveals large-scale intensity with a dark and concentrated core. The bouquet delivers black fruit, balsam herb, cola, grilled herb and black olive. The wine is already very open, expressive and beautiful at this young stage in its evolution. The blend used in this vintage is 62% Nero d'Avola and 38% Perricone. The wine ages in new barrique for 18 months.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
A fine, creamy, medium- to full-bodied red, with enticing hints of ground spice and dark chocolate luring you into the glass, where supple tannins are layered with the palate's cherry coulis, dried mint, fig cake and smoke flavors. Offers a lingering, fresh finish. Nero d'Avola with Perricone and other red varieties. Drink now through 2027.

Tasca d'Almerita, Italy
Tasca d'Almerita La Tenuta Winery Image

For eight generations, the Tasca d’Almerita family has been devoted to Sicily, its land, its unique nature and its surprising and inimitable resources. Their story began in 1830 with the purchase of Tenuta Regaleali, a green oasis spanning nearly 550 hectares in the center of the island where 8 generations have fostered the past, present and future of Sicilian winemaking. Regaleali is an unpredictable and breathtaking place, even for the experienced traveler. Luscious hills roll endlessly in several shades of green, with vineyards unlike any other in the world. “Nordic” features in the deep south, like the perceptible diurnal temperature excursions between day and night, the mountainous context, and the quality of the light render this place a winemaking paradise. A mosaic of exposures, mixed soils and elevations create a proper outdoor viticulture laboratory where 25 red and white varietals are planted across 382 hectares of vines.

In the year 2000, after more than 150 years of leading Sicily’s efforts in sustainable agriculture and advancing quality wine production at Tenuta Regaleali, Alberto Tasca (8th generation family and current CEO of Tasca d’Almerita) turned his eyes toward a new endeavor in the Tasca Family’s efforts to conserve and promote the very best of their island. With a strong patrimony at his back, Alberto Tasca boldly extended the Tasca family name to four other prestigious Sicilian winegrowing regions, creating the current portfolio of estates: Tenuta Capofaro on the Aeolian island of Salina; Tenuta Tascante on the living volcano that is Mt. Etna; Tenuta Whitaker on the Phoenician island of Mozia; and Tenuta Sallier de La Tour in the DOC Monreale.

Italian Red Wine

While picturesque hillsides, endless coastlines and a favorable climate serve to unify the grape-growing culture of this country. The apparent never-ending world of indigenous grape varieties gives Italy an unexampled charm and allure for its red wines. From the steep inclines of the Alps to the sprawling, warm, coastal plains of the south, red grape varieties thrive throughout.

The kings of Italy, wines like Barolo and Barbaresco (made of Nebbiolo), and Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino (made of Sangiovese), as well as Amarone (mostly Corvina), play center stage for the most lauded, collected and cellar-worthy reds. Less popular but entirely deserving of as much praise are the wines made from Aglianico, Sagrantino and Nerello Mascalese.

For those accustomed to drinking New World reds, the south is the place to start. Grapes like Negroamaro or Primitvo from Puglia and Nero d’Avola from Sicily make soft, ammicable, full-bodied, fruit-dominant wines. Curious palates should be on the lookout for Cannonau (Grenache), Lagrein, Teroldego, Ruché, Freisa, Cesanese, Schiopettino, Rossese and Gaglioppo to name a few.
