Riserva del Conte is a collector’s wine produced only in the best vintages. A tribute to the challenge that Count Giuseppe Tasca d’Almerita set himself in 1959: the creation of a Sicilian wine to compete with the top wines of the world. The 2016 edition, a vintage that was perfect from an analytical and organoleptic point of view, comes from of a blend of Perricone and Nero d’Avola from the historic San Lucio bush-trained vineyard. In homage to its origins, it is aged in 500-liter chestnut barrels.
