Count Lucio Tasca is a leader in eco-sustainable farming and carbon neutral programs. Grapes are from young vines, planted in 2004 & 2007 on the north slope of Mount Etna, specifically from contradas Sciaranova, Piano Dario and Rampante. The terraced vineyards have volcanic sediment soil and are at 600 meters in elevation. [The name ‘Ghiaia Nera’ is in reference to these black soils.] Aged in large Slavonian oak barrels for 24 months. Bright ruby red in colour, with aromas of smoky earth, strawberry, rose petal and tarry minerality. Wild strawberry, red currant, pomegranate and white pepper are framed by firm tannins and bright acidity. Red currant and a wisp of smoke harmonize with the spicy finish. Straightforward, lively and a great value. 100% Nerello Mascalese 13.5% Alcohol Tenuta Tascante ‘Ghiaia Nera’ Etna Rosso DOC 2017 #vinobiologico #etnawine #volcanicwine #organicwine #vinisiciliani #sustainablewine #sicilianwine #vinoitaliano #winereview #italianwinelover #instavino #vinorosso #italianwine #redwine #winestagram #instawine #etnarosso #nerellomascalese #tascadalmerita #tenutatascante #ghaianera #caravino
