Etna’s Nerello Mascalese is well known for producing quality rosé wines thanks to its light, bright color. From a small piece of a vineyard in Contrada Rampante, Tefra – from the Greek for “ash” – the set of pyroclastic materials generated by the volcanic eruption. A true Nerello Mascalese on the nose: delicate and clean, and yet very dynamic in the mouth, thanks to its freshness and zestiness.


A blend of grapes from the various areas of Tenuta Tascante located on the northern Etna slope between the towns of Randazzo and Castiglione di Sicilia.


The landscape of the Contrada Rampante vineyards is characterized by volcanic formations with different compositions but from the same time period (between 4,000 and 15,000 years ago).
