Tascante Ghiaia Nera 2021
Ghiaia Nera is Tenuta Tascante’s demonstration of the possibilities for Nerello Mascalese from black volcanic soils. The name means “black gravel,” which describes the volcanic soil of the vineyard Subtle aromas of orange peel, cherries, and dried flowers follow through to a medium body, fine tannins and a refined, subtle finish. Aged in oak cask for 12 months.
The result of the interaction between Nerello Mascalese and Etna’s volcanic soils, this wine is conceived on terraces surrounded by chestnut and downy oak groves in a richly biodiverse area. Soft tannins, good freshness and drinkability. Aged in noninvasive large Slavonian oak barrels, just as Nerello Mascalese requires.
