The aromatic palette and structure of a fine wine from Mount Etna
The Tasca Conti d'Almerita family estate has been producing exceptional Italian wines for eight generations. The Tasca Conti d'Almerita estate comprises 5 properties, including Tenuta Tascante since 2007. Located in the foothills of Europe's highest volcano, Tasca Conti d'Almerita - Tenuta Tascante owes its uniqueness to its terroir whose volcanic soil contributes to the unique signature style of its Etna wines.
Contrada Rampante 2019 by Tasca Conti d'Almerita - Tenuta Tascante is an Etna wine made from vines located at 740 metres above sea level on the northern slopes of the famous volcano. Located between Passopisciaro and Randazzo, this 4.28-hectare terraced terroir planted in 2000 is underlain by 4,000 to 15,000-year-old volcanic formations.
A mild, wet spring preceded a hot, dry summer. The rainy spells recorded at the beginning of October favoured a slow and even ripening of the grapes until the harvest.
Vinification and ageing
Alcoholic fermentation for 8 days. Malolactic fermentation. Aged for 12 months in Slavonian oak barrels.
Contrada Rampante 2019 by Tasca Conti d'Almerita - Tenuta Tascante is made exclusively from Nerello Mascalese.
