Vigna di Paola Salina IGT Tasca d’Almerita 2022
An island, Vulcan, to which Hephaestus, god of fire, bestowed fertility and a unique microclimate. An area, Contrada Gelso, where there is a Malvasia vineyard, 4.5 hectares with southern exposure. A soil, made of ash and fine, brown sands, as well as pumice, silicates and metals. A woman, Paola Lantieri, who for years has cultivated this vineyard with dedication and has entrusted us Tasca’s to continue to do so with the same care and passion. Vigna di Paola, a tribute to all this.
