Nozze d'Oro

It is in the uniqueness of the combination of varieties that his romanticism can be read: it was born of Inzolia and Sauvignon (variety Tasca), a selection of varieties growing at Regaleali since the end of the First World War. The use of indigenous yeasts root this wine even deeper in the local territory.

SAUVIGNON TASCA

SAUVIGNON TASCA

Our own, home-grown clone of Sauvignon Blanc, fruit of a forty-year grafting programme carried out by Count Tasca. In the 1950s this indigenous variety was mistakenly labelled a Malvasia. A vigorous vine, Tasca has medium-sized grape clusters of cylindrical shape. The roundish berries have a golden yellow, spotted, remarkably tough skin. It's used exclusively in blends.

INZOLIA

INZOLIA

One of Sicily's most important indigenous white varieties, second only to the Catarratto clones in terms of acres planted. Typically bunches will be loose-packed, winged and pyramidical. The oval-shaped berries vary in size from medium to small; the yellow-grey skin carries a bloom. When mature, the fruit generally has a high sugar content (19-27%), and low acidity (3.2 to 5.8 per thousand). It's also known as Ansonica.
