Almerita, Contessa Franca

ALMERITA tells the story of a production philosophy, evolving along the way by looking at the characteristics of the vineyard, and its territory. Since 1987 it has been represented by the typical Liberty stained glass, created by Bevilacqua for the villa in Mondello.

The experimentations continued using a slow artisanal process, while researching complexity, finesse and longevity. The 2010 harvest appeared to be a good vintage, so we decided to wait for 60 months. A slow and long aging process on yeast, while attempting to maintain the typical notes of the Chardonnay from the Regaleali Estate. Contessa Franca is dedicated to a wife, a mother and grandmother that had a fundamental role in the history of Regaleali.
