3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Drawn by a combination of unique climate and volcanic soil, with true biodiversity acting as a backdrop to the vineyards, the ”TASCANTE Estate” project, now in its third grape harvest, has added a second wine: ”GHIAIA NERA” (Black Gravel), our interpretation of ”Nerello Mascalese” from the young vineyards of the Estates of Mount Etna. Another important witness for Sicily, a wine growing continent made up of different territories and countless variables, so much so that it still has enormous potential to be expressed.

 Wine Advocate 91 points (May 2014)
From the blackened sloped of Mount Etna, the 2011 Tascante Ghiaia Nera is a pure expression of Nerello Mascalese. The Tasca family purchased precious vineyard land on Etna and began releasing a series of volcano-based wines about five years ago. This is a very successful, ruby-colored expression that is appropriate for near-term consumption. The grape’s natural tannins have been softened and the wine shows generous fruit tones, mineral shadings, leather, tobacco and exotic spice. Drink 2015-2020.
