Tasca d'Almerita

The Tasca Family has always cultivated its land with passion, attention for technological innovation and deep respect for the territory. Nestled in a landscape of rare beauty, at an altitude between 400 and 700 meters above sea level, the Regaleali Estate benefits naturally from the unique features of the local environment that determines the qualitative excellence of a wine. The microclimate is marked by the perfect balance between the sunlight, the presence of temperatures appropriate for the perfect ripening of the grapes and the day-night temperature range of more than 15°C providing for the preservation of the grapes’ wealth of aromas. The estate’s land covers more than 500 ha of that 400 are cultivated with vineyards and has a varied geological composition. It is an extremely versatile resource making possible the selection of the ideal variety of grapes to be planted. T

he grapevines are alternated with almond trees, expanses of wheat, oat, and groves of young and old olive trees. The sheep, an ancient and natural “weedkiller”, give an excellent milk for the production of ricotta and cheeses that in Regaleali we garnish with an exquisite rosemary honey or with homemade marmalades. Plants of juniper, rosemary and eucalyptus grow around the reserves of rainwater flocked with wild ducks and grey herons during winter. Hunting is forbidden and after sunset it is easy to meet here and there hedgehogs, hares, wild rabbits and porcupines. In this context the contribution of man lies first in finding the right cultivation techniques and then in the running of the estate and winemaking.

Research and experimentation both in the vineyard and in the wine cellar are the expression of a trend aiming at total quality expressing itself in full in the products. The presence and interaction of various environmental, genetic and human resources, all bound together by a single word: love. This is the century - old production philosophy of the Tasca Family.
