Full body, silky tannins and a linear and spicy finish. I like the power and, at the same time, the elegance here. Delicious now, but better in 2020.

Tasca Conti d'Almerita is long celebrated for its Cabernet Sauvignon wines, but this bottle is indeed something special. The 2015 Sicilia Cabernet Sauvignon Tenuta Regaleali Vigna San Francesco (aged in new oak for 18 months) shows plump and exuberant ripeness with dark blackberry and plum. Spice and sweet tobacco come in at the rear. This is a full-bodied red with a richly concentrated and generous disposition. This wine is open, immediate and intense. Hats off to this stunning creation. Some 30,000 bottles were produced. By the way, to avoid confusion, I will point out that this wine was previously known as the Sicilia Contea di Sclafani Cabernet Sauvignon Tenuta Regaleali. The label has now been modified to give more prominence to the single-vineyard, the Vigna San Francesco, where the fruit is sourced.
