Tasca d'Almerita Tenuta Regaleali Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Ideally drink now to 2028
Decanting time: 1 hour.
A sophisticated, well-proportioned Cabernet Sauvignon wine that is full-bodied and gently rich. Renowned for their extraordinarily sophisticated, almost aristocratic, offerings, the Sicilian Tasca D’Almerita wines are a classic requirement for any serious collector. The Regaleali Estate has drawn international acclaim and shone the spotlight on Sicily's under-recognized ability to create meaningful and critically important wines.
Deep, intense red in color with garnet reflections. Full, herbal nose with aromatic waves of fruity and balsamic undertones carrying hints of black pepper and vanilla. Well balanced, smooth and seamless palate. Freshness and solidity meet together uniformly in a tightly concentrated core of rich, ripe fruit flavors with a backdrop of sage and fresh mint. This cosmopolitan wine carries bold but not overpowering tannins. Elegant and bold mouthfeel, with harmonious layers of richness this vintage is particularly classic in its delivery. Long progression toward an elegant, persistent finish that delivered hints of resin and juniper. Aged for 18 months in new French oak barriques. Serve with Italian foods, red meat and grilled vegetables.
This wine has aptly received numerous awards, consistently since 1990 onwards, including the Concors Mondial de Bruxelles Gold for the 2003 vintage and Silver for the 2007 vintage.
