TASTING NOTES

The history of Tasca d'Almerita in Sicily is inscribed in the land that it has been caring for and handed down for eight generations. The whole range of wines produced by Tasca d'Almerita always guarantees the highest quality, combining refinement, reflection of the terroir, and a typically Sicilian expression. Chardonnay Vigna San Francesco is a Sicilian white wine made exclusively from 100% Chardonnay grapes. Chardonnay is a very early variety and in Regaleali it is usually fully ripe between the end of August and the beginning of September. The soil has a normal organic matter content and is rich in mineral salts, magnesium and potassium in particular, with a good amount of phosphorus. The vines are espaliered, with a double Guyot training system. The grapes are fermented in 350-litre French oak barriques, with lees stirred daily for the first 10-15 days, during which the skins remain in contact with the wine, then weekly and for the remaining 8 months of ageing in small wood barrels. Golden yellow in colour, on the nose it is an explosion of yellow pulp fruit, exotic fruits, banana, citron, pineapple, sweet spices such as cinnamon, vanilla, white pepper and honey. On the palate it is rich and intense, complex, harmonious and with a very long length. Perfect for Sunday lunch and paired with cheeses. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Tasca d'Almerita

The history of the Tasca d'Almerita winery has its roots in the 19th century, when brothers Lucio and Carmelo Mastrogiovanni Tasca purchased 1,200 hectares in the Regaleali district in Sicily. Even then, techniques considered cutting-edge not only in the Sicilian wine scene but throughout Italy were being used. The immense winemaking heritage, handed down for eight generations, is now under the leadership of Alberto and Giuseppe Tasca, who carry on the winery always respecting tradition but with an eye to the future. Each of the five estates belonging to the Tasca d'Almerita estate is managed with extreme care and rigor, thanks to the support of a conspicuous team of collaborators. What makes Tasca d'Almerita's wines so special is the vast spread of its vineyards between the island of Salina, land of Mavasia, across to the slopes of Mount Etna. These are some of the most beautiful places in Sicily, and also the most dedicated to wine production. Terroirs with different characteristics ensure that each of the different labels of red and white have distinctive notes, which are recognised and appreciated worldwide. Name and address of producer/distributor: Tasca d'Almerita - Via dei Fiori, 13, 90129 Palermo (PA). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
