Chardonnay "Vigna San Francesco" DOC Tasca d'Almerita
Awards and honors
The most famous white grapes, if cultivated and worked in Sicily, get a completely different meaning. They take part to the tradition and give values to the culture. Lucio Tasca believed in this concept and more than 30 years ago, he planted Chardonnay variety in Regaleali, in the lower part of the hill San Francesco. These were the first hectares in the history of Sicily, cultivated still today on soils of fluvial origin that give the right balance between richness and freshness. The wine making and the aging in French barriques made of oak cooperate to the high quality of this product. 100% Chardonnay, cultivated in the estate Regaleali, in the district of Palermo, in the heart of Sicily.
