Tasca d'Almerita Regaleali Bianco 2017

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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 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.

I really like this wine. It is crisp, has good acidity and a light floral flavor. A good deal at $10.

This is the second time I am writing a review of this wine. Drinking the 2008. It's been open for about 3 days. It's still smooth and crisp. It doesn't seem to have the floral bouquet, but it's totally drinkable and totally enjoyable.

Helles Strohgelb mit grünlichen Reflexen; feinduftige Nase mit Noten von grünem Apfel und Zitrusfrüchten. Im Gaumen erfrischend saftig, trocken, Aromen von gelben Steinfrüchten, etwas Honig und Grapefruit. Die milde Säure macht ihn zum echten Genuss.

Straw yellow in color with a delicate and persistent bouquet of green apples, peach, pear and citrus, Regaleali Bianco is dry and crisp with excellent structure and a superb fruity finish. Clean and refreshing, Regaleali is great for antipasti, asian cuisine, fish, shellfish, octopus salad, and vegetables. A blockbuster and a terrific value.

Aromas of tangerine, mint, flowers and cut hay. Supple, round and ripe but quite dry, with zesty flavors of apple, quince, honeysuckle and acacia flower. Subtle, lingering finish offers spicy and floral nuances.

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

A crisp, light-bodied, floral, citrusy/apple scented and flavored wine, Regaleali's 1998 Bianco displays lively fruit, not much body, but a dry, clean finish. This completely tank-fermented and aged offering will have flexibility with an assortment of dishes.

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.
