One of the first Nero d’Avolas introduced to the American market, Regaleali Nero d’Avola is now a well-established example of this varietal from Sicily. Cultivated in the heart of the island, this wine expresses itself in old-world style and elegance. After fermentation in stainless steel, the wine is aged in a combination of 50% stainless steel and 50% Slavonian oak barrels.
