Tasca Tenuta Regaleali Rosso del Conte 2016

From the heart of Sicily, Tasca's Tenuta Regaleali Rosso del Conte is an award winning wine made only in exceptional vintages and is a faithful expression of its terroir and the beautiful Vigna San Lucio vineyard where the grapes are grown. In 1959, Conte Giuseppe Tasca, planted the San Lucio bush-trained vineyard in the magical countryside of Tenuta Regaleali, an hour and half’s drive inland from Palermo. He decided to alternate four vines of the powerful Perricone grape variety to every 10 plants of Nero d’Avola. Today, this vineyard is a beautiful plot of 7 hectares and showcases perfectly how these two grape varieties coexist. This vintage is Perricone (48%) and Nero d’Avola (52%) matured for 18 months in new 225 litre French oak barrels. Rosso del Conte is a wine that is exuberant, vibrant and energetic in its youth, yet with ageing it develops a velvety touch, without losing structure and flavour. Certainly a wine for the cellar.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
