Estate Regaleali

Nozze d’Oro

Vintage 2017

In 1984 Count Giuseppe Tasca d’Almerita decided to celebrate his 50 year anniversary with his wife Franca by making a wine that will tell the story of his family and the Estate. Tue unique composition of the varieties provides a sense of romanticism to this wine. Created from a blend of Inzolia and Sauvignon Tasca Selection, a variety selection that has been cultivated at Regaleali since World War I. Tue use of local yeasts ties this wine even more to the territory it comes from. Fresh, young and surprisingly prone to longevity, balances the tertiary aromas with the intensity of the fruit.
