Estate: The Tasca family has farmed their Regaleali estate since 1837. Today the 8th generation of the family, Count Lucio Tasca, oversees the nearly 600 hectares of vineyards [including the Capofaro and Whitaker estates] along with his sons, Giuseppe and Alberto. The family is committed to organic farming and sustainability; they are behind the ‘SOStain’ programme, an organization that guides companies towards increasing their sustainability. The name of the wine reflects the “thousands of roses, brought in from all over the world”, that flourish throughout the Regaleali estate.
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: The 2018 vintage is from Nerello Mascalese vineyards planted in 1974. Aged for 3 months in stainless steel tanks.
Tasting Notes: Coral pink in colour with aromas of pink grapefruit, cherry, strawberry and sea spray. Citrus acidity glosses cherry, watermelon, strawberry and a trace of white pepper. Pink grapefruit and saline minerality linger on the crisp finish. Consistently fruity, refreshing and a great value.
