Vineyards and grapes

As all of the Tasca d'Almerita projects, the starting point was the vineyard in Salina as well. The 15 acres purchased at Capofaro were planted with Malvasia for the past thirty years: the best part of the vineyard was conserved, renovating the structure and fixing the flaws. Therefore, it was possible to combine the qualitative potential of the ancient vineyard with the opportunity to find the most interesting Malvasia plants on the island, to create a new vineyard with grapes that have pronounced aromatic qualities. Withering is done under the shade, with the aim to maintain the fruit fragrance and to provide elegance to the wine. The soft grape pressing and the use of low temperatures during fermentation allow extracting and maintaining the characteristic aromatic qualities of the grapes. We also disgorge the Malvasia in its dry version, our Didyme, which is the ancient name of Salina.
