Tenuta Delle Terre Nere 'Calderara Sottana' Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Slightly less complex than the Guardiola' but no less a wine the 'Calderara Sottana' is made from the indigenous Nerello grape is unbelievably fresh and complex' with a wonderfully pronounced nose. Robert Parker calls it a ''terrific' elegant savory fresh perfumed wine offering notes of sweet smoked herbs intermingled with cherries earth and a hint of truffles. It is delightfully balanced and layered' and is without a doubt ready to drink.'' This beautifully knit wine should be drunk over the next 3-4 years.

Tenuta delle Terre Nere:
Tenuta delle Terre Nere is the fruit of over 30 years of passion and work in the world of fine wine. And an extraordinary location, as well - this "island within an island" that is the Etna - that my brother and I chose. And that, I sometimes believe, actually chose us.

Tenuta delle Terre Nere is the fruit of over 30 years of passion and work in the world of fine wine. And an extraordinary location, as well - this "island within an island" that is the Etna - that my brother and I chose. And that, I sometimes believe, actually chose us. A place where nature is prodigal but also severe. And here I try with all my heart to express as purely as possible the refined and multifaceted microcosm of this ancient volcanic land. With respect, care and hard farm work, always in organic balance. The estate's philosophy is simple. Given an extreme climate, in order to obtain the best and most consistent ripening, our attention must focus on vineyard management. The finest workmanship in all aspects of viticulture is the first thing that sets us apart. And what enables us, bringing home exceptionally fine grapes, not to be invasive in our cellar work. A work best described as aimed above all at expressing the character of our varieties in their specific terroir. A great team, a delicate hand and a heightened sensibility, as well. And our ideals, that drive us to give the best of ourselves in quest, not of perfection, but of the ideal bond between what nature gives us and that which our sensitivity, experience and imagination suggests. All this sets us apart. Marco de Grazia http://www.tenutaterrenere.com Read less
