Rosso del Conte

Estate Regaleali

Rosso del Conte

Vintage 2015

Tue Rosso del Conte, created in 1970, is the fìrst expression of quality and longevity made in Sicily. Created by Count Giuseppe because it expresses the characteristics of the Regaleali Estate. It originates from Perricone and Nero d’Avola, from a sapling cultivation at the San Lucio vineyard. It has a long history in which it has evolved and aged using different techniques (chestnut barrels from 1970 to 1987, Slavonic rover barrels until 1991 and fìnally French rover tenneaus and barriques). It was the fìrst single vineyard wine in Sicily.
