Grapes: Nerello Mascalese
Appellation: Sicilia, I.G.T.
Terroir: North-facing, ancient vineyard site with terraces on volcanic sediments.
Influenced by a combination of a unique climate and volcanic soil, Tascante's 'GHIAIA NERA' ("Black Gravel") is the estate's interpretation of Nerello Mascalese from Mount Etna's younger vines. The wine was aged in oak casks for 12 months.
