Regaleali Le Rose Terre Siciliane IGT 2018

Thousands of roses, brought in from all over the world, thrive on the Regaleali estate. The name of this wine has changed to reflect these incredible flowers. Unchanged, however, are the Nerello Mascalese grapes which give Le Rose di Regaleali its class and elegant fragrance. The grapes are fermented, then refined for three months in stainless steel tanks. It is ready to be enjoyed immediately upon release.

Regaleali is the name of the estate, which comes from the Arabic, "Rahal-ali," or House of Ali.

Tasting Notes

Deep salmon-pink in color, Le Rose offers delicate aromas of cherry, raspberry, blackberry, and-appropriate to its name-rose petals.  Rich on the palate with refreshing acidity and a long, flavorful finish, this is what Sicilians enjoy in the summertime.

Food Pairing

Le Rose di Regaleali is perfect for tuna, salmon, poultry, pork, and flavorful pasta dishes, this wine is universally food-friendly.
