Black volcanic ash with basaltic pebbles, this large cru produces relatively early-maturing wines apparently. Mid ruby. Very round, like cherry compote, and with real excitement and density. Lovely and directed. Chock full of energy. Masses of tannin.' – Jancis Robinson 17+/20

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.

Two of the Terre Nere properties lie in Feudo di Mezzo. Very old vines, also terraced, traditional alberello plantings, very tightly spaced, also worked exclusively by hand. Loose deep volcanic ash roughed up by a good measure of small volcanic pebbles.

Winemaker's comments:
'Feudo di Mezzo is the largest cru in the appellation, a homogenous character, but with clear qualitative variations – much like one could say of Clos de Vougeot in Burgundy. From the best parcels – such as our 'Quadro delle Rose' - it betrays a dusky character, autumnal tones in its cedary-spicy bouquet. Always the fist to be harvested, Feudo di Mezzo is also always the one readiest to open up and generously deliver itself. Of all crus it is supremely silky, its tannins suave, its bouquet darkly debonair. I love it as it ages effortlessly, its crepuscular nature picking up light as it ripens. Poultry, pork, game, lasagne, braised meats.' – Winemaker
