"Wow. Here is a seriously beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon from Sicily. Tasca Conti d'Almerita is long celebrated for its Cabernet Sauvignon wines, but this bottle is indeed something special. The 2015 Sicilia Cabernet Sauvignon Tenuta Regaleali Vigna San Francesco (aged in new oak for 18 months) shows plump and exuberant ripeness with dark blackberry and plum. Spice and sweet tobacco come in at the rear. This is a full-bodied red with a richly concentrated and generous disposition. This wine is open, immediate and intense. Hats off to this stunning creation. Some 30,000 bottles were produced. By the way, to avoid confusion, I will point out that this wine was previously known as the Sicilia Contea di Sclafani Cabernet Sauvignon Tenuta Regaleali. The label has now been modified to give more prominence to the single-vineyard, the Vigna San Francesco, where the fruit is sourced."
"Tasca d’Almerita’s experiments with the most important international red variety have led to the creation of this outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine has focused the entire world’s attention on Sicily’s extraordinary but still little-known potential for creating truly impressive wines. Winner of many Italian and International awards, Tasca d’Almerita’s Cabernet Sauvignon is a very cosmopolitan wine. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown in estate vineyards planted at 1,600 to 1,950 feet above sea level with a south/southwestern exposure. This iconic Cabernet is aged for 18 months in oak barriques to achieve maximum elegance and refinement." - Importer
