The Tenuta Rasciatano
The Porro family has always owned the 300 hectars of this beautiful area situated in the Murgia countryside, halfway between the mild coastal climate and the heat tempered hills, which results in oil and wine of the highest quality.
The Coratina cultivar dominates the old centuries olive groves where at the exact ripening begins the harvesting and the pressing in the same day to create the award-winning Tenuta Rasciatano extra virgin olive oil.
The family experience in the grapes cultivation, pushes the Tenuta Rasciatano in creating a project to improve quality of wine production. In 2005 the historic cellar was renewed with only one target: vinify only the best selections of the grapes produced from the estate, such as Nero di Troia, Montepulciano, Malvasia and Chardonnay that in Tenuta Rasciatano have found it’s natural way to grow.
Wine production is handled by prof. Luigi Moio, internationally acclaimed oenologist, who was enthusiastic about the territory of Rasciatano and grapes grown here. Finally comes a new line, developed after years of preparation and we presented at Vinitaly2012 with great success.
New line is called TENUTE and includes two products,which are a Nero di Troia and Chardonnay both aged in steel.
