Tenuta Delle Terre Nere
The estate is located in Sicily on the northern slopes of the volcano, Mount Etna. This area is historically recognized as the finest in the appellation for fine red wines. Due to 500,000 years of volcanic eruptions, the soil at Terre Nere is mostly volcanic ash with black pumice and abundant volcanic rock. The extraordinary elevation yields dramatic temperature variations between night and day, making the wines of Etna fine and elegant. Given these conditions the estates philosophy is simple. “A great team, a delicate hand, a heightened sensibility, and our ideals, drive us to give the best of ourselves in quest for the ideal bond between what nature gives us and that which our sensitivity, experience and imagination suggest.”
Etna Rosso: Made from very fine, young and very old (6-50yrs old), Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappucci vines. The grapes are macerated until the end of fermentation, then continue in wood until bottled about one year after harvest. Fresh and aromatic with a fine grip!
Etna Bianco: Made from old vines (25-60yrs old) of Carricante, Catarratto, Grecanico, Inzolia, and Minnella A very complex wine with a unique flavor profile. Enjoy exploring the many nuances with each sip!
