Tanca Nica Single Plot Cuvées

Tanca Nica Single Plot Cuvées

We have been huge fans of the wines from Tanca Nica for a few years now. These expressions of the Zibibbo grape (the local name for Muscat) from the rugged and remote island of Pantelleria transport us straight to the sun baked Mediterranean every time we taste Soki Soki or Terra Forte. These cult wines are produced by combining grapes from a number of different vineyard sites. So imagine how excited we are to receive a range of 4 single vineyard wines that each offer a snap shot of unique, individual spots on the island. 

Grey Label 2022

From 50 year old vines in the Ruchia region planted on the island's Soki Soki soils with a lava bedrock. West facing slopes with 150m altitude. White wine with strong saline and umami character that is complimented with fresh stone fruit flavours.

Black Label 2022

From 100 year old vines in the Bugeber region planted on Terra Forte soils with a basalt bedrock. North East facing slopes with 300m altitude. This is a deep and complex skin contact wine with a profound volcanic character. Stone fruits, a smokey salinity, and dried herbs. 

Yellow Label 2022

From 90 year old vines in the Cufura region planted on Soki Soki soils. North East facing slopes with 300m altitude. White wine. The most light and delicate expression with more of a focus on fruit and herbs. Bitter citrus peel, apricot, peach and thyme just to mention a few. 

Red Label 2022 

From 30 year old vines in the San Marco region planted on Terra Forte soil. North East facing slopes with 50m altitude. The most structured wine of the range, this reflects the warmer terroir on the iron rich, red sandy soils. More tannic with a darker fruit profile and dried flowers.

We only received one bottle of each so don't hang around!

Finally, we still have Tanca Nica's collaboration with Nino Barraco in stock as well as the incredible sweet wine Passulata 2021

Happy drinking!
