Cabernet Sauvignon

Conte Tasca D'Almerita S.r.l. Agricola

Results validated by CERTIQUALITY Srl

This ‘foreign’ red arrived at Regaleali much earlier than the production regulations allowed. But Cabernet Sauvignon adapted well to the sand, silt and clay of San Francesco hill, at almost 600 meters above sea level. That is how in 1985 one of the most representative labels for Tasca and even for all of Sicily was created. Aged in new barriques for 18 months, it is an austere, elegant wine.

AIR indicator reflects the total greenhouse gas emission directly or indirectly associated with the production of a 0.75 liter bottle of wine. Its value is calculated in terms of kg of CO2 equivalent. The life cycle of a bottle of wine comprises four main phases: vineyard management, transformation of grapes into wine, bottling, distribution, bottles refrigeration and glass disposal.
The emissions produced by each phase (named respectively vineyard, cellar distribution and consumption) are measured as a percentage of the total emissions produced during the life cycle of one bottle of wine.

The volume of each kind of water is expressed as a percentage of the overall volume of water consumed during production activities.
