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 â€˜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.
