Riserva del Conte

Riserva del Conte is a collector’s wine produced only in the best vintages. A tribute to the challenge that Count Giuseppe Tasca d’Almerita set himself in 1959: the creation of a Sicilian wine to compete with the top wines of the world. The 2016 edition, a vintage that was perfect from an analytical and organoleptic point of view, comes from of a blend of Perricone and Nero d’Avola from the historic San Lucio bush-trained vineyard. In homage to its origins, it is aged in 500-liter chestnut barrels.

Grande Vigna San Lucio

Tenuta Regaleali’s oldest vineyard covers about 7 hectares, of which 5.5 hectares were planted in 1959 with a mix of both Perricone and Nero d’Avola vines. The rest, about 1.5 hectares, was planted in 1965 with Nero d’Avola only. The altitude is 480 m.a.s.l, the exposure is south-southeast. It is grown using the bush vine system, the oldest and most widespread form of cultivation in the semi-arid regions of the Mediterranean. As in the past, the vine density is 4,400 vines per hectare, obtained by arranging the vines at a distance of 1.5 meters from each other.


The Vineyard represents the personality of a wine. The soil is yellowish brown, loamy-sandy, somewhat calcareous, with a slight presence of stones. The pH is slightly alkaline (8.5).
