Our history and that of the “Muntagna” came together in 2007, when the Tascante project (Tenuta Tascante) was born: Tasca and Etna. First and foremost it represents the exact synthesis of our idea of a vineyard on the highest volcano in Europe, Mount Etna. A force of nature in its primordial state.
On Mt. Etna, plants grow to maturity with no serious health problems even in the wettest and rainiest years, but we shouldn’t for a minute believe that good results can be achieved without work: agriculture here is far from simple. Steep slopes, terraces that climb the sides of the volcano and a slow and late ripening period make our work in the vineyard very challenging.
In our Contradas, the plants are cared for daily with competence and passion. The grapes are harvested with almost maniacal attention: we may even carry out as many as three harvests in a single vineyard.
