Tasca d'Almerita Red Blend Contea di Sclafani Regaleali Rosso 2008

Member Review by randonsvinothek:

This fantastic Tasca d'Almerita red wine is made of 75% Nero d'Avola and 25 % Merlot grapes. These are growing in the vineyards of "Tenuta Regaleali". The Merlot contributes to the smoothnes of the wine and makes it almost creamy. Its flavour contains notes of oriental spices, clove and forest berries. The taste reminds of ripe cherries, plums and discreet vanilla and has very pleasant finish. It ages in french oak barrels from Allier Troncais for 10 months. You can feel the sun in this great wine, which goes well with ragout, pasta, risotto and cheese. **2 glasses in Gambero Rosso 2008** www.randons-vinothek.de

The Tasca d'Almerita estate is situated in the Sclafani countryside, between the provinces of Palermo and Caltanissetta, near the former stronghold of Regaleali: 1200 hectars of land were reduced to 500 following the agrarian reform in 1950. The 400 hectares of vineyards are between landscapes of almond trees and olive trees, and among this expanse there are wheat, oat and eucalyptus plants, that create a rural landscape of rare charm and beauty. It is a striking and unmistakable site, which enjoys a microclimate ideal for wine cultivation thanks to an altitude that varies between 400 to 750 meters and temperature range that averages about 15 Celsius degrees at night. The careful safeguarding of the grapes aromatic properties, which give the wines a characteristic elegance and distinctiveness, is a result of a rather late maturation process, as well as careful vine selection and solid winemaking, practiced in this area since 1100.
