Tenuta Regaleali – in the middle of Sicily

It is a dramatic, mountainous landscape. In the distance the sheep is grazing quietly and olive and almond trees mix beautifully with the vines. We are standing together with Laura Orsi, oenologist and winemaker, looking out over the big estate of Tenuta Regaleali.

“Here at Regaleali we are 550 meters above sea level,” says Laura. “Our vineyards begin at 350 meters and go up to 800 meters which gives freshness and acidity to our white wines and good aging potential to the red wines.”

Tenuta Regaleali is run by the Tasca d’Almerita family and is something of a quality reference for Sicily. They were pioneers for quality wine on the island.  Rosso del Conte, their superb flagship wine, was first made in the early 1970s, and made people discover the quality of the indigenous grape nero d’avola.

Many other wines worth looking for are made, for instance the Rosé Spumante made of pinot nero and the white wines from the Sicilian grapes inzolia, catarrato and grillo.
