‘Aromas of rust, sea urchins, wild thyme, salted plums, Seville oranges, walnuts and asphalt. Very fine, tight-grained tannins. Intense rust and mineral quality, with a medium-bodied, elegant palate. Long and savory. From organically grown grapes. Better after 2023.’ – James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com, 96/100

‘The Tenuta delle Terre Nere 2020 Etna Rosso Calderara Sottana has a savory, almost autumnal personality with tobacco, wet moss, spice and dark fruit. It stands apart from the other wines in the portfolio thanks to those darker fruit qualities. Marc De Grazia uses the unusual word "feline" to describe a mouthfeel that is long and sleek. I notice the dry, silky nature of the elegant tannins. 2023-2038’ – Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, 95/100

‘The 2020 Etna Rosso Calderara Sottana is youthfully coy in the glass, hinting at sweet violets, blackberries and crushed stone. It's a model of purity within, silky and enveloping, with elegant red and black fruits that swirl over a core of saline minerals and exotic spice. The 2020 finishes long and staining, with fine-grained tannins that pinch at the palate. Red plum and cinnamon hints echo throughout. The 2020 is a very Burgundian vintage of Calderara Sottana. 2025-2033’ – Eric Guido, Vinous, 94/100

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.’
