      Dark, bright ruby red. Pure and elegant, with spicy herbal aromas and fresh fruity notes of cherry and currant. Subtle with a beautiful fruity play, delicate salt vein, yet compact and full of harmony. A Rosso with the almost Burgundian finesse and length of a Pinot Nero. SUPERIORE.DE

    • Etna Bianco DOC 2018

      Etna Bianco DOC 2018

      Etna Bianco by Terre Nere offers a surprising amount of depth and sophistication. The cuvée of Carricante, Catarratto, Grecanico, Inzolia and Minnella smells of grapefruit, quince, dried sage and wild mint. On the palate fine mineral notes, develops elegantly with notes of lemon quark. Excellent quality at a very attractive price. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Luminous medium-dark straw yellow. Aromas and flavors of chamomile and balsamic oils along with hints of pear and minerals on the inviting nose. Enters a little subdued, but finishes very strong and long. This builds on you slowly; think of it more like a marathon runner rather than a 100 yards sprinter." Vinous

      "A depth of dried apples, lemons and crushed sea salt follows through to a full body, layers of fruit and a flavorful finish. Shows length and depth." James Suckling

      Etna Bianco Superiore DOC 2018

      In recent years, Tenuta delle Terre Nere has fortunately been able to acquire a very old vineyard in the increasingly narrow market around Etna. This historic location, called Milo, with its old vines, is predestined for the new Etna Bianco Superiore, which will be launched on the market for the first time in 2018. In the nose more flowery and citrus-scented than the normal Carricante, the Superiore also shows a little more body, depth and finesse. The elegant acidity makes it vibrant and long and ensures an exciting drinking flow and a beautiful maturing potential. SUPERIORE.DE

    • "Una Tantum" Bianco Etna DOC 2017

      “Una Tantum” Bianco Etna DOC 2017

      Una Tantum is a special cuvée that Marco de Grazia bottled with a strictly selected batch of his best Carricante grapes from the 2017 harvest. The name was chosen in order to emphasise the exceptional nature of the wine and at the same time to emphasise that it will probably remain a unique project wine.

      Golden yellow colour, yellow flowers in the wide fragrance and some citrus. On the palate a soft acidity unfolds with a fine salt vein, accompanied by a spicy herbal note. In the final again salty with a mineral component, very long and impressively different. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A rather deep, slightly herbaceous-planty, delicately smoky and clearly mineral scent with restrained yellow-fruity aromas, floral hints and a hint of bacon. Rather firmly worked, restrained, tart, fine juicy, noble fruit, yeasty, somewhat herbaceous planty, smoky and clearly mineral notes, very fine acidity, a hint of nut and butter in the background, still young, good depth, fine handle, best balance, very good, firm finish, again with restrained, noble yellow fruit, intensive minerality and smoky notes." Marcus Hofschuster

      "Pale lemon. More evident almond nut and cinnamon oak tones, with some white-peach richness alongside lemon fruit. Chalky minerality. Ripe lemon, chalk, smoky minerality and some apple skin, with phenolic texture and a touch of salinity." Jancis Robinson

      "This is powerful from the get-go, brimming with dried herbs, cherry liqueur, plum paste, dried tamarind, Christmas cake and Indian curry.

      Santo Spirito is a wonderfully complex wine. It combines firmness, strength, structure and density with the aromas of dark cherries, pomegranate, blood oranges and spicy herbal notes and concludes with a furiously long final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Pale-medium ruby. Crushed rock, vanilla scent and something almost minty. Cranberry and red-cherry fruit. Sweet-sour palate fruit with a bitterness reminiscent of Campari. Compact, fairly firm, chalky tannins that need time to unwind. Long, dried herb and spice finish." Jancis Robinson

      "A fragrant, medium- to full-bodied red that shows impeccable balance and integration, layering fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity with flavors of ripe strawberry, cured tobacco and star anise, balanced by a bright hint of pomegranate. The sculpted tannins show more presence on the long, minerally finish." Wine Spectator

      "Sour cherries, ripe strawberries, heather, rosemary, cedar, sweet tobacco and red licorice all spring from the glass. The full-bodied palate remains racy throughout, painting a precisely framed, confident portrait of subtle berries with loads of acidity crunch." James Suckling

    • "Moganazzi" Rosso Etna DOC 2017

      “Moganazzi” Rosso Etna DOC 2017

      Here comes the new single vineyard wine, which is similar in style to the Santo Spirito, but has an "autumnal" component. Bright ruby red, in the nose gravel, vanilla and a subtle mint tone, in addition some cranberry and cherry. On the palate then fresh and exciting with a sweet-sour component and a delicate bitter vein. Compact tannin that certainly deserves a few more years of bottle ripening. In the final then herbal-spicy and long. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Pale-medium ruby-purple. Notable dried thyme and bay lift to fresh leather, smoky minerality and floral notes, and blackberry rather than red-cherry fruit. Sweet blackberry palate fruit, with firm, sandy tannins that are taking on a polish now. Saline touch to the mid palate, with a medium-long to long finish. A touch of warmth is the only detraction to an otherwise attractive and distinctive Etna Rosso." Jancis Robinson

      "Bright red-ruby. Clean, very mineral and floral, with juicy red/black cherry aromas and flavors. A refined, mineral wine that is very well balanced and precise. This clocks in at 14.5% alcohol, but doesn’t taste warm at all. In fact, I like this wine’s austere, mineral-tinged, long finish. Will likely improve in the bottle." Vinous

      "Sandalwood, Chinese spices, cumin, leather, strawberry liqueur and dried peach pit. Medium-chewy and very precise on the medium-bodied palate; the tannins are impressively dialed-in and the acidity is taut and far-reaching. Both savory and crunchy on the long finish." James Suckling

      Guardiola - a rousing Etna Rosso with a great aroma of spices and mineral notes. On the palate persistent, with great fruit and subtle elegance. A typical terroir masterpiece. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Luminous crimson color. Offers minty red fruit and minerals on the captivating nose. Full, dense and rich, with multilayered flavors of red cherry, minerals, exotic spices and aromatic herbs. Finishes long with building mouthcoating tannins and with some alcohol-derived heat. The nose takes longer to open up than in the other 2017 Terre Nere wines, so decant an hour ahead (at least) prior to serving. Better still, cellar it for another five to six years for maximum enjoyment." Vinous

      "Dried strawberries, blueberry compote, walnuts, dried orange peel and dried leaves. This is a bold and tannic but silky and suave, full-bodied red. Layers of plush fresh fruit come straight to the fore and don’t leave the palate until the long finish finally gives way." James Suckling

    About the winemakers
    Tenuta delle Terre Nere
    Sicily
    Tenuta delle Terre Nere

    You need good shoes if you want to go to your vineyards with Marco de Grazia. Best mountain boots. Because that's where you actually go mountaineering. Yeah, you could call it climbing in some places.

    Marco de Grazia is well known in the international fine wine scene. You could say worldwide. He was one of the first in Italy to bring together several up-and-coming wineries and was thus able to achieve remarkable export successes. He was co-inventor and engine of the Barolo Boys.

    In his constant search for good and authentic wines, he arrived in Sicily in 2002 and tasted Rosso dell'Etna - red wine from Etna. And was fascinated. From the wine, from the bizarre landscape with the black soils and from the introverted people who harvested there in many working hours the lowest yields of gnarled ancient wine trees. That's why there weren't twenty wineries left. Today there are ten times as many and wine from Etna is a sought-after speciality.

    Marco and his brother Iano de Grazia, who joined in, are not innocent of this at all. Their commitment and fairly rapid success sparked the interest of some major wine producers, who eventually all invested around Etna.

    The highest sites of the Tenuta delle Terre Nere stretch almost up to one third to the northern flank of the mighty towering and always smoking volcano Etna. From about 600 m up to almost 1,000 m above sea level. The higher, the steeper it gets. And rockier. The highest sites - called Contrade here - are real rock terraces. These "rocks" are black. Weathered lava. Hence Tenuta delle Terre Nere. The manor with the black floors.

    You could write a book when Marco pulls his floppy hat into his face and starts telling stories. Because he has a lot to tell. From his locations, which he also likes to call "cru" and with which he draws comparisons with Burgundy. If one compares the wines, one also understands this, because "Rosso dell'Etna" from individual sites (Cru or here Contrade) could be understood as a combination of Barbaresco and Burgundy.

    The winery is located on the northern slopes of the volcano, between Solicchiata and Randazzo. In the middle of the combed green of the vine rows on black soil lies the striking red house with the cellar. And here it is again, the comparison with Burgundy - "if one would compare the wine-growing area around Etna with Burgundy, then these sites would be here the Côte d'Or des Etna" says Marco de Grazia.

    Already in his first vintages (2002) Marco de Grazia decided to vinify the individual "Crus" separately, because the soils and microclimates are so different. Even within a single small plot, which may have one hectare, the differences can be considerable due to the former eruptions and lava flows, the soils being of different ages - and a height difference of 200 metres.
    Due to the altitude, it is relatively cool and always windy, even in midsummer. Offshore wind - after all, Mount Etna is 3,350 m high. And during the day the winds blow from the nearby sea across the land. All sites have been farmed organically since the beginning, some of them have been in organic farming for generations.

    Feudo di Mezzo is the largest site in the region, which is why its volcanic soil is interspersed with various ancient lava flows. 600-700 m above sea level with 40-80 year old vines. The heart is called "Il Quadro delle Rose", from here comes a very elegant and complex Etna Rosso DOC, from Nerello Mascalese.

    Caldera Sottana is the steepest and hardest rocky vineyard. Grapes - 50 to 100 years old - only 5 tons per hectare. 14 ha red (98% Nerello Mascalese, 2% Nerello Cappuccio) and 3.5 ha white (Carricante). A floor made of volcanic ash, black pumice stone and solid volcanic rock.

    One hectare of it, divided into two small plots next to the cellar, is called "La Vigna di Don Peppino". These vineyards have survived the phylloxera and are still root true vines, more than 130 years old. A man cared for her all her life, for more than 70 years; without him they would hardly have survived. Today they are magnificent little trees. Low yield, but elegant and structured. Thanks to Don Peppino.

    Santo Spirito is the most scenic location with a great view. At 700-760m above sea level, 40-100 year old vines grow on "younger" volcanic soils rich in nutrients and minerals. Around the vineyards grows a lot of green, meadows and wild herbs, and so are the wines from this location. Quite intense and finely spicy.

    San Lorenzo is the "newcomer", but with sticks up to one hundred years old. 4 hectares of magnificent Nerello grapes on volcanic and rocky soils. At about 750 m above sea level you can reach mini yields of about 5 t/ha. These small berry grapes produce complex, finely structured and elegant red wines that are among the best in the region.

    Guardiola is the highest "Contrada". One of the first vineyards to be purchased by Marco di Grazia and his brother Iano. 800 to almost 1,000 m above sea level, windy, cool, barren. Volcano, basalt, hard and steep. Extreme handwork, many hours of work for just three and a half to four and a half tons of grapes. This effort is only worthwhile for lovers, because they appreciate this herbal spice, this wonderful, clear dark fruit, structure and complexity, as well as elegance and potential for many years.

    "The wines of Marco di Grazia have helped to put Etna at the top of the geological map. Its consistency in winemaking is one of the most important guarantees for the future of this up-and-coming wine region". Robert Parker
