Tasca Regaleali Le Rose Nerello Mascalese Rosé IGT 2014

tascarose

Estate: The Tasca d’Almerita family of estates consists of the Regaleali, Capofaro, and Whitaker estates. The Tasca family has farmed the Regaleali estate since 1837. Today the 8th generation of the family, Count Lucio Tasca, oversees all of the nearly 600 hectares of vineyards along with his sons, Giuseppe and Alberto. The family is committed to sustainability; they are behind the ‘SOStain’ programme, an organization that guides companies towards increasing their sustainability.

Philosophy: Passionate about eco-sustainability, the Regaleali estate is nearly completely self-sufficient; all of their food is grown on the estate and they are working toward a carbon neutral rating. Their goal of achieving eco-sustainability “is a self-regulated, pro-active scheme to reach our goals through positive actions both in the short term and in the mid-to-long term” that they achieve using “science, technology and organization”.

Winemaking: Grapes were sourced from the Santa Rosa vineyard from vines planted in 1986.

Tasting Notes: Clear cherry-red in colour with aromas of strawberry and watermelon. Candied cherry and watermelon flavours are balanced by a streak of acidity that carries thru to the dry finish. Commanding for a Rosé, this drinks more like a light red and has the structure to stand up to heavier dishes.
