Its name is Sicilian for 'L'Amore,' the Love that Tasca d'Almerita puts into its work. A selection of Nero d'Avola grapes grown on high hills, fresh and full of primary aromas, without ever yielding to the temptations of excess ripening, it differs from the variety cultivated in warmer parts of Sicily. Barriques of different ages give soft and elegant tannins, with a wood note that is never invasive.

Tasca d'Almerita

View all from Tasca d'Almerita
The island of Sicily is home to the Tasca d'Almerita family of estates: Regaleali, Capofaro, and Whitaker. The Regaleali estate is at the heart of the family's wine production, and also serves as an escape from the bustle of the coastal capital of Palermo. In 2002, the family purchased vineyards on the small island of Salina to create Tenuta Capofaro, which produces elegant sweet wines with high acidity yet fresh balance throughout. The Whitaker estate consists of vineyards originally planted by the English family of the same name in the 19th century.

While the history of Tasca d'Almerita dates back to the 19th century, it was Count Giuseppe Tasca who started a new era for the winery and the Sicilian wine business in the late 1950s, devoting himself to the promotion of Sicilian wines and introducing a new business model based on quality and innovation rather than quantity and bulk production. He invented the winery's two flagship wines: Rosso del Conte and Nozze d'Oro.

EMPIRE STAFF REVIEW

Great Food Wine

"This awesome Sicilian red has notes of cranberries, cherries, pomegranate, and cured meat on the nose with hints of dried leaves and clay. Medium bodied and smooth with leathery berry and herbal flavors. Pair with anything from grilled meat to pasta dishes. Great table wine to have around for spontaneous get togethers or to pair with your favorite Italian dishes."
