About Tasca d’Almerita- Sicilian
For eight generations, the Tasca d’Almerita family has been devoted to Sicily, its land, its unique nature and its surprising and inimitable resources. Their story began in 1830 with the purchase of Tenuta Regaleali, a green oasis spanning nearly 550 hectares in the center of the island where 8 generations have fostered the past, present and future of Sicilian winemaking. The wines from Tasca d’Alermita have always been consistent and very representative of Sicily, as a result we have offered many of their wines in our selection for over 2 decades.
Regaleali Bianco 2017- $11.99
This was the first wine produced by Count Tasca d’Almerita on the Regaleali estate. Primarily a blend of three Sicilian grapes: Inzolia, Catarratto, and Grecanico. This wine is a cool customer- versatile, refreshing, and delicious white of true Sicilian character. Straw-yellow in color, aromas of green apples and pitted fruits complement undertones of pears and grapefruits.

Lamuri Nero d’Avola 2016- $16.99
Lamùri, or “love” in Sicilian dialect, is made entirely from hand-harvested Nero d’Avola grapes. The Tasca family credits the elegance of the final wine to the unique sandy soil and microclimate of this region. Intense ruby-red in color, Lamùri offers lush aromas of black cherry, black fruits, vanilla, tobacco, and wild herbs. 90 points Wine Advocate; 92 points James Suckling
Regaleali Rosso 2016
Bright ruby-red color, this wine offers layered notes of cherry, mulberry and raspberry. On the palate, it is complex and supple, with ripe berry flavors framed by silky tannins. A delicious
Sicilian red at a great value! The right choice for eggplant parmigiana, pasta with meat sauce, meatballs, sausages, pizza and roasted meats.
