Overview of the Wine
Tasca d’Almerita’s story begins in 1830 when brothers Lucio and Carmelo Mastrogiovanni Tasca purchased almost 3,000 acres in the Regaleali region of Sicily. The website notes, “introducing the most modern agricultural technology available into the Sicilian backcountry.” Ten years later, the dowry of Lucio’s wife included Villa Camastra, today’s Villa Tasca, the Palermo residence of the Tasca d’Almerita family today. In 1882, Richard Wagner finished the 3rd Act of Parsifal while a guest at Villa Tasca.

In 1950, the redistribution of land during Italian agricultural reform reduced the Regaleali estate to 1,240 acres. Four years later, the current vineyards were planted. In 1960, the family planted their first white grapes, including catarratto using the guyot pruning system. In 2018, Tasca d’Almerita is the first wine estate to be certified Viva—SOStain.

Tasting Notes
Antisa is the "wait", full of expectations and projects, dreams and trust. Our Catarratto is the most ancient, and "common" grape variety, typical of the Sicilian territory, but becoming rare. It's cultivated at Regaleali at over 900 meters above sea level for a unique aroma with hints of pink grapefruit.

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast (Winery of the Year)
Spring wildflower, peach and whiffs of exotic fruit aromas follow over to the palate along with lemon drop candy and green melon. Tangy acidity brightens the fruity flavors, while a hint of saline signals the close.
