TENUTE DELLE TERRE NERE 2010 PREPHYLLOXERA

From Nerello Mascalese 100 from vineyards dating back to 1870 that are located on the northern slope of Mount Etna at 650 meters above sea level in Contrada Calderara. Aged in barriques for 15-18 months, the wine shows a deep ruby color with complex aromas of fruit and spice on the palate concentrated, but elegant at the same time aromonico and goes with red meats, game and aged cheeses. Proprietors Marco and Iano de Grazia are best known for the extensive portfolio their company represents but they are also proving to be very talented winemakers. Tenuta delle Terre Nere is located on SicilyAAAs Mount Etna, a recently re-discovered region that is set to challenge readersAAA perceptions of Sicilian wines. These are believed to be the highest vineyards in Italy and Europe. The late-ripening indigenous Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Capuccio yield wines of notable aromatic complexity, with finessed tannins and a weightless quality that recalls Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo.
