2019 GHIAIA NERA, Tascante. Etna, Sicily

Bin:  656

Alcohol percentage:  12.5%

Grape variety:

100% Nerello Mascalese aged for a year in huge, old oak casks.

Producer:

The Tasca family made their name and fortune in the mid 20th century, through the huge Regeali brand. Alberto Tasca (8th generation) has steered the company pointedly up-market, developing diverse and serious brands in different regions, all run independently and with quality the only key focus.

In their own words: “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.”

Old Bridge rating:

A relatively affordable introduction to the extraordinary wines of Etna. A hint of savoury smokiness, but overall a very accessible, open, charming style.
