'Mediterranan scrub, wet stone and hazelnut aromas emerge from the glass along with a whiff of white stone fruit. On the linear, savory palate, fresh acidity and saline mineral notes lend tension to mature golden apple, toasted almond and a just a dollop of vanilla. It has an understated elegance and aging potential. Drink through 2030.' – Kerin O’Keefe, Wine Enthusiast, 93/100

'Crushed almonds and hazelnuts give way to young peach, yellow apples and hints of fresh ginger as the 2020 Etna Bianco Le Vigne Niche-Santo Spirito unfolds in the glass. This is a soft and round expression, with mineral-tinged stone fruits and inner herbal tones offset by a twang of green citrus toward the close. It’s structured and poised through the finale, also quite salty, which keeps the mouth watering for more. Drink 2023-2028.' – Eric Guido, Vinous, 91/100

'Sleek, offering macerated white cherry and poached apricot fruit flavors, which are backed by racy acidity and a streak of tangy salinity. Features hints of lentil and spice that linger on the lacy finish. Drink now through 2027.' – Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, 91/100

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.’
