Overview the Wine
In the late 1960s, 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 red blends such as Bordeaux and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. 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.

54% Nero d'Avola, 26% Perricone, 20% other local grapes

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Deep ruby-red in color, this wine offers enticing aromas of Marasca cherries and herbs with undertones of vanilla and tobacco. On the palate, silky tannins and a rich body culminate in a long, flavorful finish.
