'The 2020 Etna Bianco Le Vigne Niche-Montalto lifts up with unexpected depths and richness, showing young mango and lemon oils mixed with dusty dried flowers, underbrush and gingery spice. Its silky textures wash across the palate, with a soothing mix of ripe apple and pear that give way to savory herbal tones and hints of raw almond toward the close. This tapers off with a salty tinge and is incredibly fresh, leaving behind notes of green melon and stony mineral tones. The Montalto is sourced from vines on the southern slopes of Etna between 900 to 975 meters in elevation, planted in soils of deep volcanic ash. Drink 2022-2028.' – Eric Guido, Vinous, 92/100

'A compact white framed by lightly mouthwatering acidity. Medium-bodied and minerally, offering a delicate mesh of Asian pear, almond blossom and lemon thyme. Drink now through 2025.' – Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, 90/100

'Aromas of citrus, Mediterranean brush, eucalyptus and toasted oak form the nose. The aromas follow through to the elegant palate along with vibrant acidity and salty mineral notes.' – Kerin O’Keefe, Wine Enthusiast, 90/100

Producer information Marco de Grazia is the owner and founder of Tenuta Delle Terre Nere and considered by many to be the pioneer in putting the region of Etna on the map. He was the driving force behind convincing the Italian wine industry the value of demarcating Contrada within their wine producing areas. Marc is a big fan of this classification system and has integrated the model into his own lineup. It is this kind of thinking and investigating that has made Marc and Terre Nere so successful. According to Robert Parker, ‘Terre Nere’s wines all possessed unbelievable freshness and complexity as well as huge perfumes that suggested Pinot Noir…These wines are astonishingly complex and ethereal efforts from the hillsides of Mt. Etna in Sicily.
