  4. Regaleali Bianco Sicilia DOC

This was the first wine produced by Count Tasca d’Almerita on the Regaleali estate. Primarily a blend of three Sicilian grapes: Inzolia, Catarratto, and Grecanico, with some Chardonnay, this wine is cool-fermented in stainless steel to create a versatile, refreshing, and delicious white of true Sicilian character.

Tasting Notes

Straw-yellow in color, aromas of green apples and pitted fruits complement undertones of pears and grapefruits. On the palate, crisp acidity and a rich body make for an easy-to-drink white wine that is particularly refreshing on a hot summer day.

Food Pairing

This wine is great as a sipping wine, but it also pairs well with antipasti, ceviche, pulpo gallego, and Asian cuisine.
