Why do we love it?
Ghiaia Nera Etna Rosso 2017 Tenuta Tascante is an amazing, elegant wine from Etna! It's so good that the 2017 vintage scored 94 pts by James Suckling, 91 pts by Robert Parker, and 92 pts by Wine Enthusiast! If you add to all the above the Iconic winery Tasca d’ Almerita then you understand that we are talking about a very fine wine!

The Tasca d’ Almerita winery was founded in 1830 in Sclafani, Sicily. In 2007 they decided to start a new project, Tascante (from Tasca and Etna), in Etna. From the beginning of its career, it made a great impression and managed to stand out. The vineyards have been selected based on their soil, slope, and special microclimate.

For the Ghiaia Nera Etna Rosso 2017 Tenuta Tascante, the Nerello Mascalese grapes come from the north side of Mount Etna, from vines that grow at an altitude of 600 meters. The harvest is done by hand and after strict sorting, the wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged in oak tanks for 12 months. The result is juicy, floral, and expressive with silky tannins, simply amazing!

If you are wondering which red wine, you will be drinking from now and all summer, then you have just found it!

GHIAIA NERA ETNA ROSSO 2017 - TENUTA TASCANTE

PAIR IT

with octopus in wine sauce, spaghetti bolognese, orzo with guanciale and shrimps, caponata, linguine with fresh tuna, cherry tomatoes and garlic, or a chicken cacciatore.

Οctopus with tubetti half pasta in the oven.

1 big octopus
250 gr. tubetti half pasta
1 big onion 
1 teaspoon tomato paste
150 gr. tomato sauce or concasse tomato 
50 ml. cognac
1 teaspoon of sugar
2 bay leaves                                                                                            3-4 grains of all spice
1 small cinnamon stick
Freshly ground pepper
Salt
Olive oil
1.100 ml. hot vegetable or seafood broth or water

In a saucepan, put the octopus, with a bay leaf, to braise over low heat. The octopus will release its liquids, especially if it is frozen, to boil but if necessary add a little hot water. When it is softened and red, remove it from the fire and cut it into small pieces.

Chop the onion and saute it to 50 ml. olive oil along with the octopus, for 3-4 minutes. Then, put in the cognac, add the spices and the other bay leaf. Add the tomato paste, sugar, tomatoes or sauce and a cup of broth or water. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

Transfer to a moderate baking dish, add the remaining hot broth or water, 50 ml. olive oil and stir. Taste it and add salt if necessary.
Bake in a well preheated oven at 175 ° C for about 25 minutes or until the pasta is cooked, stirring regularly.

Serve the pasta with the octopus hot as soon as it comes out of the oven!
