Nero d’Avola is a variety which has a long history, although it was showed off and introduced to wine lovers and consumers only a few years ago, placing it at a level of prestige not only in its land of origin, Sicily, but also in the rest of Italy and the rest of the world. The Nero d’Avola of Sallier de la Tour is produced with great passion, favouring firstly low productions per vine, therefore guaranteeing itself a harvest which is higher in quality and concentration. The choice of ageing the product in wood for twelve months and assembling it later with the same wine aged in steel, allows to keep the fresh and fruity notes of a young wine and to obtain aromas of spices and liquor, extremely elegant. In addition, the wine indicates a good evolutionary potential throughout the time.
|Eight generations of our family are linked to two extraordinary places which are part and parcel of Sicily’s history: the Regaleali estate which now stretches over 500 hectares at the very centre of Sicily; and Villa Tasca (formerly Villa Camastra) in Palermo, heart and soul of the Sicilian capital’s social and cultural life in the late 19th century. Tasca counts have always spearheaded a can-do culture, being the first to introduce any innovations in farming technology and cultivation techniques.
From the late 19th century through the early years of the 20th, Regaleali upgraded and specialised, succeeding in making itself stand out from the under-developed region around to become a model agricultural business. From the mid-20th century onwards, the family firm grew and developed, inventing, producing and distributing the wealth of this land and spreading its values: solidity, consistency and simple hard work. Once established as a wine-growing and -producing concern, the long history of Regaleali’s Rosso del Conte, Nero d’Avola reserve and chestnut-aged Perricone began. And the company’s vocation for exalting Sicily’s culture and land became clear. The immense success of Regaleali Bianco – Sicily’s first true expression of a terroir-linked wine – crowned our achievements.
