95% Nerello Mascalese, 5% Nerello Cappuccio

About Terre Nere:
The estate is located on the northern slopes of the Mt. Etna volcano, with vineyards between the village of Solicchiata and the town of Randazzo. The area is historically recognised as the finest in the appellation for fine red wines. The property consists of over 30 hectares, divided into 10 parcels in four crus, with a total vineyard surface of 25 hectares. Except for 6 hectares that were planted more recently, the rest of the estate’s vines are between 50 and 100 years old.

Vineyard age (year of planting):
Nerello Mascalese 2008,1963 and Nerello Cappuccio 2008,1963

Vinification:
Temperature controlled fermentation (25-28° C) and aging is done through spontaneous malolactic fermentation and aging in large French oak barrels (10-30 hl). Bottling after 16 months of wood aging and 1 month in steel.

Tasting note:
'Made from very fine Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio from low yielding vineyards (35 Hl. Per hectar), both young and old. The grapes are macerated until the end of fermentation. The wine then continues its life in wood until bottled roughly one year after harvest. Even young it is a distinguished wine. Fresh, fragrant, beautifully slender and with a fine grip, it has a natural polish, a stage presence, as it were. And, in aging, as its weave gathers into rich complexity, it is a wine for gentlemen. It is an aristocratically liberal wine: enjoy it with whatever food you wish, as long as its properly cooked.' – Winemaker

'This well-balanced red is medium-bodied and fresh, with flavors of cherry, grilled plum, tea rose and smoke framed by sculpted tannins. Drink now through 2023.' – Wine Spectator, 90/100
