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.

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

A seamless, impeccable wine, the 2009 Etna Rosso Santo Spirito wraps around the palate with stunning depth. Layers of fruit emerge over time, but what stands out most is the wine’s stunning textural elegance and pure finesse. Absolutely nothing is out of place. Licorice, tobacco, plums, red cherries and cinnamon all flow through to a huge, resonant finish supported by seemingly endless layers of saline-infused minerality. This is a drop-dead gorgeous wine from Terre Nere. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2030.

Bright dark red. Red cherry, raspberry and powdered rock on the nose; noticeably deeper and more complex than the entry-level Etna Rosso. Dense, sweet and creamy, with red berry and red cherry flavors lifted by floral and mineral components. Firm acids give the wine an attractive juicy quality and extend the flavors on the long, clean finish. This is creamier and more ready to drink than some of the other single-vineyard Terre Nere wines, but it has lovely minerality and a highly appealing juicy fruity quality.
