The Almerita Brut Contea di Sclafani DOC by Tenuta Regaleali by Tasca d'Almerita is a very elegant sparkling wine according to the classical method from Sicily.
In the glass it presents itself in a glossy golden yellow with a very fine, persistent perlage. The nose develops typical Sicilian citrus aromas, the scent of medlars and lemon peel, on the palate this exquisite spumante inspires through fine natural, smooth fullness and softness. The reverberation is long and lasting.
Vinification of the Almerita Brut Contea di Sclafani from Tasca d'Almerita
For this exclusive Sicilian sparkling wine, 100% Chardonnay grapes are vinified, which grow in the highest areas of the Regaleali vineyards. After manual harvesting, the grapes undergo fermentation and complete malolactic fermentation. The wine is then aged for 24 months in the bottle following the "Metodo Classico", the traditional bottle fermentation on the yeasts, then degorged in spring and refilled with the brut dosage. Afterwards he rests another 6 months in the bottle store before he comes on sale.
The Almerita Brut from Chardonnay has been produced with great care and patience since the beginning of the 90s, the slowness of ageing is characteristic of the high quality and finesse of this sparkling wine from Tasca, which has won several awards over the years.
