Light and floral on the nose with notes of melon and grapefruit pith. Nice acids up front enliven the palate which is light, perhaps a bit simple but fresh with nice purity to the peach and grapefruit flavors. This has ok length finishing with vibrant minerality, and is really very well balanced. Not a show stopper but very refreshing with good texture for a relatively light weight wine. 88pts

The 2007 Regaleali Bianco is a soft-textured, generous white with pretty notes of jasmine, white peaches and sweet spices. A blend of Inzolia, Catarratto and Grecanico (all indigenous varieties), it is fermented and aged in stainless steel. For many years Regaleali Bianco has been one of Italy's most consistently excellent value-priced wines. This is another beautiful effort from Tasca d'Almerita. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2010.

Shows lemon peel and milk character. Full and fruity, with good acidity and a medium finish. Inzolia, Grecanico and Catarratto. Drink now.

This winery, better known as Tasca d'Almerita, has been a consistent entry into The Wine Advocate's best buy reports for their value-priced wines form Sicily. Considering how far south they are, these wines possess remarkable freshness, as evidenced by the 2005 Bianco IGT, a blend of such indigenous grapes as Inzolia, Caterratto, and Grecanico. No malolactic is employed for this crisp, elegant white. Aromas of green apples, white peaches, and lemon zest emerge from its medium-bodied, fruity personality. With good acidity and a superb finish, this stunning 2005 will drink well for 1-2 years.

Attractive aromas of melon and apple follow through to a full body, with lots of bright citrusy acidity and a medium finish. Inzolia, Grecanico and Catarratto. Drink now.

Attractively fresh, perfumed wine with a light tropical fruit flavor giving crispness, acidity and a clean, elegant aftertaste.

I first tasted this wine almost 20 years ago, and it is still one of my all time favorites. Light and crisp, yet medium bodied, it is beautifully balanced with apricot and tropical fruit characteristics. Fantastic wine for sipping alone, or serve with grilled chicken or barbecued shrimp.

The 2006 Regaleali Bianco (40% Inzolia, 30% Grecanico, 20% Cataratto) is a fresh, perfumed effort redolent of sweet, honeyed fruit with excellent length and fine balance. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2009.

Winemaker's Notes:

The large Regaleali estate, high in the central Sicilian hills, has been in the hands of the noble Tasca family since 1830. Ever since, the property has been run according to the best principles of the agricultural aristocracy: with one eye firmly on quality, and the other on experimentation. Tasca’s large range is the product of the family’s most successful innovations, including short pruning for lower yields, the championing of local Inzolia and Nero d’Avola vines, the introduction of French varieties, and the use of barrique and temperature control. Even now, forty grape varieties from all over Europe are planted just for experimental purposes, with the possibility of making the grade in the future. However, there is already plenty on offer in this singularly accomplished range of Sicilian wines. The elegant white blend is delicately fruity on the nose with apple, peach and pink grapefruit notes. The palate is quite intense and crisp, with plenty of fresh fruit flavours.
