Intense ruby red in color, Lamùri offers a lush bouquet of blackberry, mulberry, cherry and sour cherry jam, spices, laurel, cinnamon, vanilla, coffee, licorice and chocolate. On the palate, this wine is incredibly rich, intense and supple, with velvety tannins framing a refreshing acidity and a medium body. Recommended with mediterranean fare, such as pasta, tagines, roasted lamb, kebabs, and ribs.
Lamuri: or we could say, reasons of the heart. The history of Tasca d’Almerita is the history of a family, it tells the story of people, passion and projects. Projects as growing Nero d’Avola, which long ago sunk its roots in the hills of Regaleali.
The composition of the soil and a unique micro-climate are the substances of this terrain, passed on to the ancient vines, combining freshness and elegance with the natural richness of Sicilian wines.
|Wine maker notes
|Lamùri, or “love” in Sicilian dialect, is Tasca d’Almerita’s most luscious, fruit-forward, and youthful Nero d’Avola. Made from 100% Nero d’Avola, from 10-15 year old vines grown in sandy soils. The unique micro-climate provides Lamuri its pleasant freshness and elegance. Aged in 20% new and 80% second and third passage French barriques for 12 months for extra finesse, Lamúri is also refined in bottle for three months before release.
|Eight generations of our family are linked to two extraordinary places which are part and parcel of Sicily’s history: the Regaleali estate which now stretches over 500 hectares at the very centre of Sicily; and Villa Tasca (formerly Villa Camastra) in Palermo, heart and soul of the Sicilian capital’s social and cultural life in the late 19th century. Tasca counts have always spearheaded a can-do culture, being the first to introduce any innovations in farming technology and cultivation techniques.
From the late 19th century through the early years of the 20th, Regaleali upgraded and specialised, succeeding in making itself stand out from the under-developed region around to become a model agricultural business. From the mid-20th century onwards, the family firm grew and developed, inventing, producing and distributing the wealth of this land and spreading its values: solidity, consistency and simple hard work. Once established as a wine-growing and -producing concern, the long history of Regaleali’s Rosso del Conte, Nero d’Avola reserve and chestnut-aged Perricone began. And the company’s vocation for exalting Sicily’s culture and land became clear. The immense success of Regaleali Bianco – Sicily’s first true expression of a terroir-linked wine – crowned our achievements.
