The experiments of the Regaleali Estate with the most famous international red wines has led to the creation of an outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon, vinified in purity. A label which has focused the entire world's attention on Sicily's extraordinary but still little-known potential of creating truly important wines. Exceptional red wine, winner of several awards in Italy and abroad. A cosmopolitan.

CABERNET SAUVIGNON

CABERNET SAUVIGNON

A key component of the classic Bordeaux blend, with several clonal sub-groups, this variety makes its Italian home mostly in the north. It's one of the noblest red wine grapes, and one that can be relied on to produce consistently good wines. The medium-dense clusters are conic-cylindrical in shape. The bluish-coloured berries are rounded, thick-skinned and covered in bloom. A variety that produces extremely elegant wines with high alcohol content, it adapts well to all sorts of different climatic and territorial conditions. The strong, woody stem helps its cold-weather resistance, while the thick, bloom-covered berry allows it to defend itself not only from the cold and damp, but also from heat and insect infestation.
