Tasca D'Almerita Tenuta Regaleali Rosso del Conte 2016

Sicily, ItalyA blend of Sicily’s own nero d’avola and perricone, this is a contemporary and ambitious interpretation of these native varieties. Aged in 100% new French oak, this wine is not shy about its oak influences, contributing extra layers of floral fragrance, a cedar nose, and savoury spices to the intensely rich black cherry, plum. At almost 6 years of age, it still tastes fresh and youthful with only mere hints of soy umami and savoury black olives. It is worthy of more cellaring ahead given its powerful fruit and ample yet tightly knit tannins.Tasted: 17 September 2022Tasted by: Prices:
