Rosso del Conte Tasca d'Almerita

Towards the end of the 60’s, Count Giuseppe decided to create a special reserve of Regaleali Rosso, capable of aging like other great international red wines. A challenge he won in 1970 and renewed in successive vintages. A wine long meditated upon, fruit of research conducted with rigour and passion for many years, both among the vines and in the cellar. Rosso del Conte is produced with Nero d’Avola from plants more than forty years old, cultivated as shrubs, almost unique today in Sicily.
