It was ten years after giving Nozze d'Oro to his wife Franca for their golden wedding anniversary, that founder Count Giuseppe Tasca wanted to renew his promise of eternal love. Diamante d'Almerita (the “diamond” of Almerita) is the culminating expression of this desire. Produced from aromatic grape varieties grown in Tenuta di Regaleali, the wine is new, but the joy and dedication remain the same: "To my wife, with all my love."

Tasting Notes

Golden yellow in color, Diamante d'Almerita offers a delicate bouquet of candied fruit. Made by combining two fragrant varieties, this wine is velvety and rich with an eternally long finish.

Food Pairing

Pair with foie gras, blue cheese, tatins, and cannoli.
