Tenuta Tascante: Tasca d’Almerita’s Etna outpost

Amy Wislocki profiles Tasca d'Almerita's Etna operation and tastes the first wines to be released...

Tasca d’Almerita, located on Sicily’s eastern volcanic edge, is one of the island’s most well known wineries, and yet it’s a relative newcomer to Etna. Founded in the 1800s, it was only in the 2000s that it initiated a project in Etna – one in a line of famous names attracted to Etna by its potential for producing Nerello Mascalese wines of supreme elegance, complexity and ageability.
