Regaleali Estate

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 vineyard hectars alternate between landscapes of almond trees and olive trees, and among this expanse are wheat, oat and eucalyptus plants, all f which paint 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 a temperature range that averages about 15°C (59°F) 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 wine selection and solid winemaking, prectices in this area since 1100.
