2018 Tenuta della Terre Nere Etna Rosso
Region: Sicily, Italy
Viticulture: Certified Organic
Winemaker: Marco De Grazia
Established Date: N/A (first vintage released 2002)
The Etna rosso is made from the two noble red grapes of the appellation Nerello Mascalese 95% Nerello Cappuccio 5% both planted at an altitude of 650 meters above the sea level on the Northern slopes of the Etna volcano. Temperature controlled fermented in stainless steel vats, followed by a maturation in French oak barrel for 18 months before being bottled.
Sommelier’s Recommendation The Etna Rosso is a beautiful wine that manages to effectively communicate both the elegance and the power of this stellar appellation in Sicily. The nose profile shows ripe red fruit such as cherries, strawberries and plum, baked spices and a define note of graphite, on the palate has vibrant acidity balanced by a high concentration of soft tannins. I like to describe this wine like getting kicked in the face from a ballerina.
