In the late 1960’s, founder Count Giuseppe Tasca decided to create a special reserve of Regaleali Rosso. He wanted to make a truly Sicilian wine that could age like the great international reds, such as Cabernet and Merlot. After selecting the fruit from the best parcels, and experimenting with careful oak treatment (something unheard of in Sicily at that time), Rosso del Conte was born. Today, Rosso del Conte still stands as a revered icon among Sicilian reds and continues to be made from the very best selections of the old vine estate vineyards.
Deep ruby-red with garnet reflections, this wine offers enticing aromas of Marasca cherries, along with walnut husks, vanilla, mint, sage and tobacco. A rich, well-structured red with a silky mouth-feel and a concentration of flavors that culminates in a lingering, satisfying finish
Pair with hearty meals based pork or beef, cassoulet, rich stews and aged cheeses. Great with our Speck & parmigiano Salad, Wild Boar alla Cacciatora, Veal Osso Buco alla Milanese or Mamma’s Beef Torte.
