Tascante

Since 1830, Tasca d'Almerita has been an expression of tradition and innovation in the wine industry. Today, it operates in five farms boasting the most suitable lands for wine production in Sicily, five estates in five territories for a unique way to interpret wine, including Tascante on Mt. Etna and Regaleali in the DOC Sclafani County. Tasca d’Almerita currently run by Count Lucio Tasca, along with his sons, Giuseppe, Vice President, and Alberto, CEO. Sicily is a land of sea and mountains, volcanoes and islands, from clay to sandstone and sandstone to white limestone, from the temperate climate of the sea to the continental climate; it boasts the unique heritage of over 40 native varieties of vines. The Etna is the tallest and most active volcano in Europe. A fascinating land, particularly fertile thanks to the numerous lava flows. The Etna DOC consists of small areas called districts and it represents an important portion of the wine-growing industry in Sicily. The area is located within the Etna Park, a protected natural area, to be safeguarded as much as possible. Here, it is possible to ski while overlooking the sea, a unique and breathtaking view. For several years, Tasca d'Almerita has followed the development and climatic trends of the entire DOC Etna region, having made wine experimentally using many types of grapes from those regions. The name Tascante is the result of the combination of Tasca and Etna. The Tascante project brings together two districts featuring 21 hectares located between the municipality of Castiglione and Randazzo. The Boccadorzo farm whose terraced vineyards remind one of an ancient Mayan structure and the 40 year old Sciaranova farm. 2008 was the year of our first harvest, from 12 hectares of vineyards, 750 meters above sea level.
