'A beguiling display of spiced blood orange, balsam herbs, sour cherries, ashen stone and cedar keeps you coming back to the 2019 Etna Rosso Guardiola over and over again. It’s silky and polished in feel, with salty minerals up front that give way to tart red currants offset by a subtle tinge of grapefruit. This leaves a saturating coating of primary concentration through the structured finale, where fine-grained tannins hold the expression firm. The 2019 Guardiola will need time to show its best, yet it has all of the components to mature into a wonderful expression of old-vine Nerello Mascalese from the higher elevations of Month Etna. Drink 2024-2034.' – Eric Guido, Vinous, 95/100

'Red berry, new leather, camphor and Mediterranean scrub aromas take shape in the glass. Elegantly structured and enveloping, the savory, rather austere palate delivers Marasca cherry, tangy blood orange and licorice alongside flinty mineral notes. Taut, fine-grained tannins provide the framework. Drink 2024–2034.' – Kerin O’Keefe, Wine Enthusiast, 95/100

'A chewy, medium-bodied red that offers crunchy wild strawberry and cherry fruit flavors that are fresh and well-spiced on the palate, with aromatic hints of bay leaf, graphite and citrus. Bright, lingering finish. Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio. Best after 2023.' – Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, 90/100

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.’
