‘Marc De Grazia says he has confidence in the Carricante grape, although he concedes that there is room for improvement. Historically, he has specialized in red wines and has had less opportunity to work with white varieties. However, the appreciation for Etna Bianco wines has increased, and Tenuta delle Terre Nere is stepping up to accommodate demand. His 2021 Etna Bianco Santo Spirito is brilliant and tonic with sharp contours and crisp lines. This single-vineyard expression shows floral notes of white rose and acacia. In 2022, the estate harvested its first fruit from a newly acquired Carricante vineyard in Milo (they have 1.5 hectares in the Contrada Salice). We can expect a new wine to be added to the portfolio. 2022-2033’ – Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, 94/100

‘An inviting nose with some flinty character and notes of lemon grass, pears and lilies. Medium-bodied with steady acidity and rounded notes of citrus. Focused, with a wonderful texture. Subtle spice at the finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.’ – James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com, 94/100 ‘The 2021 Etna Bianco Le Vigne Niche Santo Spirito opens slowly in the glass, hinting at baked apples and autumnal spice lifted by the suggestion of fresh mint. It's elegant and silky on the palate, seamless is the word, with ripe orchard fruits and lemon complicated by savory herbal tones. It finishes long and potent, seaming to melt away from the palate slowly with Asian pear and spice notes. 2023-2028’ – Eric Guido, Vinous, 92/100

Producer information Marc 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.’
