The adventure of Tasca d'Almerita on Etna began in 2007, when the Tascante project was born: Tasca and Etna, the synthesis of Tasca's idea of a vineyard on the highest volcano in Europe; a force of nature in its primordial state. In this extraordinary territory, on the eastern coast of Sicily, they have entered on tiptoe, with the respect one owes to a "giant". One of the most active volcanoes in the world, Etna is a vast cone-shaped volcano-basaltic compex that covers a large circular surface (about 1,200 kmq).
The products that derive from the activity of the volcano are solidified lavas and pyroclastic materials ("tefra" i.e. ash, lapilli, bombs) that deposit on top of each other and that make Etna a "stratovolcano" charachterized by effusive eruptions that alternate eruptions of a more explosive nature. A high level of yearly rainfall provides all the necessary water reserves to the soil, while the temperature ranges between day and night preserve the aromatic heritage systhetized in the hours of light in the final products.
Everything about Etna spreads magnetism: its vineyards, terraces, woods, dry stone walls, the land and the men who live here. The architecture of this place, the landscapes that only the volcano can create and shape are so clear and defined that you cannot be but enchanted.
