This Wine: One of the 4 bottles of Tanca Nica's top cuvée range that are all made from single plots on the island of Pantelleria. The 'Black Label' comes from vines in the Bugeber region that are nearly 100 years old on slopes facing north east at 300m altitude. This is a deep and complex skin contact wine with a profound volcanic character. Stone fruits, a smokey salinity, and dried herbs. Tiny production.

Notes on the Winemaker: Tanca Nica is the natural wine project of Francesco Ferreri & Nicoletta Pecorelli who farm just 3 hectares of vines the small and remote island of Pantelleria. Located off the coast of Tunisia, the island is party of Italy and boasts Sicilian cultural traditions. The wines from Tanca Nica are wild but precise and complex, displaying all the signs of sun baked land and Mediterranean influence.
