|Estate Regaleali||Almerita Contessa Franca||Spumante DOC Contea di Sclafani|
ALMERITA speaks to our philosophy of production that has evolved over the years, with an eye to the variety’s characteristics and its terroir. From 1987 to today, it has been represented by the typical Liberty-style stained glass done in the early 20th century by the artist Bevilacqua for the villa at Mondello. Experimentation continued in the way craftsmen do, without hurrying, seeking complexity, quality and longevity. The 2010 harvest was promising and so we waited 60 months. A long, slow maturation on the lees, trying not to lose the typical aromas of the Regaleali Estate Chardonnay.
