95% Nerello Mascalese, 5% Nerello Cappuccio

This Etna Rosso boasts an array of complex aromas of bright red berries and wild cherries. As the wine opens up, hints of pomegranate and a base of sea-salt minerality become more apparent. The wine is lively on the palate, with fine tannins perfectly balanced by a refreshing acidity. The wine's red fruit flavors are complemented by subtle hints of floral notes and tea leaves, underscored by graphite.

Marc De Grazia is an American who has been importing wines from Piedmont and Tuscany since 1980. Some years back he decided that Etna was where he wanted to settle down and make his own wines; he founded Tenuta delle Terre Nere and since 2002 has been issuing multiple cuvées. His estate is located on the northern slopes of the volcano, the area historically recognized as the finest in the appellation for fine red wines. The property comprises some 75 acres with a total vineyard surface of 68 acres, most of which is planted to vines that are between 30 and 100 years old. All the wines are produced from local varieties, including this Etna Rosso, which is a blend of Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Capuccio. This is a highly aromatic, light- to medium-bodied red, elegant and very drinkable, with crushed raspberries, mineral, and spice flavors, light tannins, and a smooth finish.
