94 points James Suckling: "Aromas of baked black cherry, charred rosemary and dried rose. Medium-bodied with fine, silky tannins. Smoky and pleasantly savory on the palate. I like the lingering finish here. Delicious. Drink or hold. (9/6/22)"

92 points Kerin O'Keefe (Wine Enthusiast): "Lithe and savory, this lovely red has enticing scents of Mediterranean scrub, wild berries, crushed stone and eucalyptus. The polished, savory palate offers wonderful finesse, featuring wild strawberry, pomegranate and star anise alongside flinty mineral notes. Glossy tannins provide elegant support. Drink through 2027. (Dec 2021)"

91 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "Now part of the Etna DOC, the Tenuta Tascante 2020 Etna Rosso Ghiaia Nera reveals a slightly wild character with forest berry, grilled herb and bitter tea leaf. This entry-level red is lean-bodied with good freshness and silky tannins. Fruit is sourced from the Contrades Sciaranuova, Pianodario and Marchesa, with steep terraced vineyards. This value wine (with 55,000 bottles released) offers a terrific introduction to the exciting wines of Mount Etna in Sicily. Drink: 2023-2026. (Jun 2023)"
