Heiner Lobenberg über:
Contrada Pianodario 2016


Lobenberg: 98 Terassen in einem Block, 775 Höhenmeter, 3,8 ha Rebfläche, nach Süden und Osten abfallend, verschiedene vulkanische Ober- und Unterböden, damit eine komplexe Gemengelage. Sehr klares Nasenbild: konzentrierte Erbeere, Vulkangestein, Kirsche und Herzkirsche. Am Gaumen frische Zwetschgen und präziser Gerbstoff, sehr lang mit mineralischen Eindrücken, die sich mit reifen Fruchtnoten verbinden. Trotz der etwas reiferen Fruchtnoten, sehr klar gezeichnet, sehr präzise auch in dem Zusammenspiel zwischen diesen Fruchtnoten und auftreibender Frische. 95/100


Wine Enthusiast über: Contrada Pianodario

-- Wine Enthusiast: Underbrush, wild berry, blue flower, camphor and wet stone aromas lift out of the glass. The smooth palate is loaded with finesse, delivering succulent red cherry, strawberry compote, blood orange, star anise and a hint of tobacco framed in taut, polished tannins. Bright acidity keeps it beautifully balanced, and a tangy mineral note graces the close. 96/100


Suckling über: Contrada Pianodario

-- Suckling: Plenty of smoke, pumice, cedar, pine cones and cigar box on this one, not to mention dried strawberries and red licorice. Then come hints of treacle tart and fudge. Lots of mineral drive on the palate, which is wrapped up neatly in fine tannins. Medium-bodied and quite long on the finish. 94/100


Decanter über: Contrada Pianodario

-- Decanter: Pianodario is the coolest and highest of the three vineyards, at 800m above sea level. Terraced with dry stone walls to enable farming on the steeply sloping terrain, the soils are shallower here and rich in minerals consisting of volcanic sands, small- to medium-sized rocks, and pumice. The average temperature is 3˚C lower than in the Rampante vineyard, and the wine is marked by higher acidity and tannins – a marked austerity. Vinified in the same way as Rampante, with 12 months in Slavonian oak, this is fresh, cool, aromatic and tightly mineral, displaying characteristics of rose petal and redcurrant. Fantastic length and power. 94/100


Parker über: Contrada Pianodario

-- Parker: One of three new single-vineyard wines introduced by Tasca's Tascante, the 2016 Etna Rosso Contrada Pianodario comes from the western-most parcel located between Montelaguardia and Randazzo. These are relatively new vines, planted in 2010, in soils representing various lava flows, the oldest in 1646 and the newest in 1981. This is a bright and accessible wine with pretty tones of wild berry and dried pomegranate followed by candied orange and pressed violets. It will no doubt be exciting to follow this wine as those vines get, proverbially speaking, older and wiser. Some 5,000 bottles were made. 93/100

Mein Winzer


Die Familie Tasca betreibt nun schon seit 190 Jahren Weinbau auf Sizilien. Als sie das Gut Regaleali erwarb, existierte Italien noch nicht und Sizilien wurde von den Bourbonen, dem Königshaus Spaniens, regiert.
