From an estate of 1200 Ha purchased in 1830 until today. Tasca’s world is a simple world. A world of dedication and passion, in constant communication with who sets the pace and has the last say: nature. Hundreds of men and women work in these landscapes, repeating age-old gestures, even if aided by state-of-the-art research. And guests are welcome, surrounded by continuous work in the fields, among vegetable gardens and livestock. Five harvests a year, all different for their colors and smells. Stories of wine from west to east in Sicily, from harvested grapes that travel by boat, to those harvested at 1000 meters above sea level on the volcano, before the snow arrives.
Keeping one eye on the sky, the other on the earth.

2016 Catarratto Antisa DOC Sicilia
2016 Syrah DOC Monreale - La Monaca
La Monaca, named after the historic winery, comes from special biotypes of Syrah that have shown unique adaptability on the Sallier de La Tour Estate. This is the Sicilian expression of a variety whose origin is disputed, but which has found in the DOC Monreale territory, and specifically in the Jato valley, an ideal place to grow.
The La Monaca vineyard, planted in 2011, is characterized by a soil with a sandy texture (37.4% sand and 12.5% clay), well ventilated, thoroughly draining and therefore drier, which makes the vine less vigorous. The low vigour, the low productivity and the characteristics of the soil are favourable to a balanced and complete ripening of the grapes, more suitable for red wines with good structure and long ageing.
Aged 14 months in French oak, it is spicy with herbaceous and balsamic notes; benefits from decanting.
2017 Capofaro Malvasia IGT Salina
This is "the" Malvasia according to Tasca d’Almerita. In the vineyard, a wide foliage covering the bunches is maintained in order to protect the grapes from excessive heat exposure and preserve the aroma. Once the grapes are picked. they slowly dehydrated, thereby maintaining a good acidity and a decent alcoholic content. Aged 6 months in stainless steel, the wine is fresh lush and balanced with floral notes and hints of peach and orange zest.
