Mt. Etna

 

The new vintage of Marco de Grazia’s Tenuta Delle Tere Nere Etna Rosso wines will arrive in July.

These are made with high-elevation old vines on volcanic soil from Mount Etna’s signature Nerello Mascalese grape. They are all fantastic wines that combine the character of Barolo and Burgundy and are bottled and labeled as Contrada sub-zones. They are all similar. They are all distinct.

The reputation of these wines has soared, so they have become tightly allocated. Please let us know what you would like, and we will fill your orders as best we can. All wines are very limited. All prices are NET per bottle.

 

2021 Tenuta Delle Terre Nere 

 

Premier Cru

Guardiola is the highest elevation contrada with volcanic sand and basaltic pebbles. The wine has a powerful character and focused intensity.

Santo Spirito is next to but completely different from the craggy Guardiola contrada. The soil is deep rich volcanic ash. The wine is sophisticated and tender, luscious and sensual.

Feudo di Mezzo is a large parcel of homogenous volcanic soil. The wine has a dusky character with cedary, spicy, suave tannins and silky structure.

Moganazzi is a small parcel with beautiful biodiversity. The wine has a luminous character and a brilliant tightly woven structure.

 

Grand Cru

San Lorenzo is one of two contrada that sit on ground from an ancient eruption 60,000 years ago. The wine has rich soft tannins and is velvety and voluptuous.

Calderara Sottana is the other contrada on the ellitico eruption. Floral and spicy, leathery and aromatic with a creamy texture.

Bocca D’Orzo, neighboring San Lorenzo, has long been considered one of the finest contrada but was almost entirely buried by lava in a 1981 eruption. Marco discovered a small island of vines that escaped the lava and in 2017 succeeded in buying this monopole vineyard. He added Dagala, Sicilian dialect for “island.” to the cru name..

One single vineyard inside Calderara Sottana contains 100% 130 year-old Prepylloxera vines,  Terre Nere Prephylloxera is simply incredible. Monumental with heavenly elegance.
