'Undeniably elegant and remarkably pretty, the 2019 Etna Rosso San Lorenzo is the understated beauty of the Terre Nere portfolio. An inviting bouquet of dried roses and smoke gives way to crushed cherries, plums and hints of clove. This washes across the palate with the silkiest of textures, ushering in ripe red and hints of blue fruit under an air of violet flowers, lavender and spice. It tapers off persistently, only lightly structured, and with a balanced inner sweetness that combines to create a total sense of harmony. Frankly, it’s hard to put this glass down. This is only the fifth vintage of San Lorenzo from Terre Nere’s parcels in Randazzo, and it is easily the best one yet. The San Lorenzo comes from a rare terroir that exists on a veritable island of deep, ancient Ellittico soils that were spared from the more recent volcanic activity (as in the last few thousand years) on Etna. The 2019 is not to be missed! Drink 2023-2032.' – Eric Guido, Vinous, 95/100

'Dark-skinned berry, camphor and dried rose petal aromas form the enticing nose along with whiffs of cake spice. On the almost velvety palate, polished, enveloping tannins accompany raspberry jam, vanilla, licorice and a hint of espresso before a saline close. Drink through 2029.' – Kerin O’Keefe, Wine Enthusiast, 95/100

'A bright and chewy medium-bodied red, which layers a pretty range of ripe cherry, iron, smoke, star anise and citrus peel notes. Features a delicate thread of tobacco that winds through the flavors and finish. Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio. Drink now through 2027.' – Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, 91/100

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.’
