Tasca d'Almerita Regaleali Nero d'Avola 2017
Bright ruby-red color, this wine offers layered notes of cherry, mulberry, and raspberry. On the palate, it is complex and supple with ripe berry flavors framed by silky tannins. The right choice for eggplant parmigiana, pasta with meat sauce, meatballs, sausages, pizza, or roasted meats. A delicious Sicilian red at a great value!
The island of Sicily is home to the Tasca d'Almerita family of estates: Regaleali, Capofaro, and Whitaker. The Regaleali estate is at the heart of the family's wine production and also serves as an escape from the bustle of the coastal capital of Palermo. In 2002, the family purchased vineyards on the small island of Salina to create Tenuta Capofaro, which produces elegant sweet wines with high acidity yet fresh balance throughout. The Whitaker estate consists of vineyards originally planted by the English family of the same name in the 19th century.
