Descrizione vino

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.

 

Features of the white wine “Chardonnay Vigna San Francesco DOC”

Gold yellow colour with green reflection. The perfume is wide, with a great bouquet that opens with cedar and banana, enriched by delicate hints of spices that recall cinnamon and vanilla. Its taste is intense, rich and balanced, with a pleasant, fresh final.
