Tenuta Delle Terre Nere

Sicily, Italy | website

Likely the pre-eminent producer in the entire region, Tenuta Delle Terre Nere are masters of the Etna wine scene. Located in the northern slopes of the volcano, with vineyards between the village of Solicchiata and the town of Randazzo, the area is historically recognized as the finest in the appellation for fine red wines. The property consists of over 30 hectars, divided into 10 parcels in four crus. The majority of the vineyards are between 50 and 100 years old. Most astonishingly of all, they have one parcel that survived Phylloxera and is 130-140 years old. Tenuta Delle Terre Nere are prime examples of what love for the terroir and an understanding of modern technology and business can do for wine. From their entry level Etna Rosso and Bianco DOCs to their illustrious crus, these wines are gorgeous and suitable for some serious ageing.

"The 2011 Etna Rosso Calderara Sottana is light in color but masculine in personality. It-s a tight, nervous wine that needs more time to evolve in the cellar. Pretty fruit tones of wild berry and cassis set the stage, leaving ample room for nuanced mineral expressions. The tannins are tight, but polished and should become finer with age. Drink 2017-2030."
