A pretty bouquet of peach skins, white flowers and hints of raw almond lifts up from the 2020 Bianco Regaleali. It's round and pliant in feel yet full of lively energy, with brisk acids enlivening its citrus-tinged orchard fruits. The harmony within from start to finish keeps you coming back to the glass for more, as this tapers off remarkably fresh and floral.
In 1830, two Tasca brothers bought the “Tenuta Regaleali” (Regaleali Estate), a green oasis in the centre of Sicily, in the ancient County of Sclafani. Since then, generation after generation, they have been custodians of this territory and have shared its fruits with passion.
After the two wars of the last century, at a time when Sicily was not known for its agricultural products or for the variety of its territories, they began to make wine on the Regaleali Estate: a fresh, light white wine (among the few that were easy to drink at that time), a red wine with a medium-bodied structure and a very respectable rosé wine: the three wines on which Regaleali built its fame.
