Nerello Mascalese harvested from 50+ year old vines planted on the volcanic black soil of Mt. Etna was aged for 18 months in Slavonian oak casks and offers pretty floral scents of wisteria and ripe red fruits, ginger and dried herbs. Persistent tannins and mineral notes on the finish.
Wine Advocate 93 points - The 2009 Tascante (Nerello Mascalese) is all about the weightless elegance and depth that is possible on the Etna. The wine possesses gorgeous inner sweetness and mid-palate pliancy, not to mention terrific overall balance. Striking floral and mineral notes are woven throughout a core of expressive fruit in this vivid, totally inviting wine. This is a great showing from Tasca. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2019.  (Feb 2013)

Founded in 1830, Tasca d’Almerita operates five estates in five territories, including Tascante on Mount Etna. Tasca d’Almerita is currently run by Count Lucio Tasca, along with his sons, Giuseppe, Vice President, and Alberto, CEO. For more than a decade, the Tasca family studied the terroir of the entire DOC, experimented with grapes sourced from different vineyards throughout the appellation and determined that Nerello Mascalese produced wine of incredible depth and complexity, reminiscent of Nebbiolo from the Langhe or Pinot Noir from Burgundy. The Tascante project, derived from the words Tasca and Etna spelled backwards, brings together Tenuta Boccadorzo, with its 14 acres of vineyards planted on a series of interconnecting terraces surrounded by dry stone walls from the late 19th century and the walled vineyard, Tenuta Sciaranova. The two parcels total 52 acres and are located between the towns of Castiglione and Randazzo. The winemaker is Laura Orsi, and the consulting winemaker is Carlo Ferrini. In 2012, Tasca d’Almerita was named ”Winery of the Year” by Gambero Rosso.
Producer
Eight generations of our family are linked to two extraordinary places which are part and parcel of Sicily’s history: the Regaleali estate which now stretches over 500 hectares at the very centre of Sicily; and Villa Tasca (formerly Villa Camastra) in Palermo, heart and soul of the Sicilian capital’s social and cultural life in the late 19th century. Tasca counts have always spearheaded a can-do culture, being the first to introduce any innovations in farming technology and cultivation techniques. From the late 19th century through the early years of the 20th, Regaleali upgraded and specialised, succeeding in making itself stand out from the under-developed region around to become a model agricultural business. From the mid-20th century onwards, the family firm grew and developed, inventing, producing and distributing the wealth of this land and spreading its values: solidity, consistency and simple hard work. Once established as a wine-growing and -producing concern, the long history of Regaleali’s Rosso del Conte, Nero d’Avola reserve and chestnut-aged Perricone began. And the company’s vocation for exalting Sicily’s culture and land became clear. The immense success of Regaleali Bianco Sicily’s first true expression of a terroir-linked wine crowned our achievements.
