San Lucio is the first “grande vigna” created on the Tenuta Regaleali in 1959, from which the first and following editions of Rosso del Conte were born. Here two varieties coexist: Perricone and Nero d’Avola. They have a
similar vegetative cycle: they are fairly late ripening grapes, ripening on average between late September and early October. The Rosso del Conte is a faithful expression of its terroir, recalling the high hills in the heart of Sicily. On the aromatic level, Rosso del Conte never exaggerates in
overripe notes, while guaranteeing full phenolic ripeness. A wine that is exuberant, vibrant, and energetic in its youth, with aging it develops a velvety touch, without losing structure and flavor. In its long history it has
experienced various production approaches, particularly in its aging technique: chestnut barrels, Slavonian oak, small French oak barrels. But all the while maintaining its peculiar identity.
