‘Of the wines in this important portfolio from Etna, this one is often the softest and the most sensual. The Tenuta delle Terre Nere 2020 Etna Rosso Santo Spirito delivers a very fine and nuanced fruit profile with a fluttering of wild berry and rose. The mouthfeel is lean and delicate, and the tannins are supple. Santo Spirito can be seen in three parts: the high part, middle part and lower parcel. The middle part is the least interesting because an old stream flooded there and changed the soils. Marc De Grazia uses the lower part for red wines and the upper part for whites. 2023-2028’ – Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, 95/100

‘This has a perfumed nose of rose-hips, currants, pomegranates, violets, lemon zest, cloves and cinnamon stick. Seductive spicy character. Almost peppery, with a medium body and firm, tight-grained tannins. Lots of tension.’ – James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com,95/100

‘Sweet autumnal spice, cedar shavings, cherry sauce and mint nuances make the 2020 Etna Rosso Santo Spirito impossible to ignore. This is a showboat, silky and refined, with pure red berry fruits and saline mineral tones that add a lovely traction toward the close. Zesty acidity provides a nice inner freshness as the 2020 tapers off spicy and extends with a tinge of fine tannins that promise many years of positive development. 2024-2032’ – Eric Guido, Vinous, 93/100

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.’
