Etna Rosso DOC, Sicily, Italy

Wine Advocate 92 points!

“Proprietor Marc de Grazia is one of the pioneers of the Etna. Not only was he among the first producers to recognize the value of these once-forgotten, ancient terroirs, he also was the first producer to bring attention to the specific qualities of these vineyards by bottling single-parcel Nerellos that have become reference-point wines for the Etna.” – Wine Advocate

Terre Nere Etna Rosso is a beautiful red wine gem from the volcanic soils of Sicily. The Terre Nere estate has roughly 43 hectares of vineyards, along with 150 olive trees. The Guardiola vineyards are the highest-altitude red-grape vineyards in Europe! 500,000 years of volcanic eruptions have created endless soil variation in neighboring plots of land, many of them radical. The soil at Terre Nere is mostly volcanic ash speckled by black pumice and peppered with abundant volcanic rock. Above all else, the extraordinary elevation yields dramatic temperature variations between night and day, making the wines of Etna fine and elegant, devoid of the heat and overripe flavors that usually define southern wines. Certified organic.

“The Tenuta delle Terre Nere 2020 Etna Rosso is made with declassified contrada fruit. The base is Nerello Mascalese, but a little Nerello Cappuccio and Nerello Mantellato is included, depending on the vintage. The wine is redolent of wild berry, mountain flower, dried herb, crushed white pepper and volcanic ash. It shows a silky finish with firm structure. Drink 2023-2028.”—Monica Larner, Wine Advocate 92 points!

This vintage is 98% Nerello Mascalese and 2% Nerello Cappuccio. The wine underwent spontaneous malolactic fermentation and aging in large French oak barrels (10-30 hl). Bottling after 14-16 months of wood aging and 1 month in steel.

Enjoy Terre Nere Etna Rosso over the next 6-8 years with osso buco, lasagna, grilled meats and aged cheeses.
