Description

98% Nerello Mascalese, 2% Nerello Cappuccio. Proprietor Marc de Grazia is one of the pioneers of the Etna. Not only was he among the first producers to recognize the value of these once-forgotten, ancient terroirs, he also was the first producer to bring attention to the specific qualities of these vineyards by bottling single-parcel Nerellos that have become reference-point wines for the Etna. Terre Nere’s wines all possessed unbelievable freshness and complexity as well as huge perfumes that suggested Pinot Noir. These wines are astonishingly complex and ethereal efforts from the hillsides of Mt. Etna in Sicily. The Calderara Sottana is a single vineyard on the north slope of Mt. Etna, 600-650 meters high, that is farmed organically and all old vines, 50 to 100 years with some of them pre-phylloxera. Floral and spicy, leathery and aromatic, it delivers a wonderful filling sensation on the palate, yet stepping lightly. It is perhaps the most complete single vineyard wine from Terre Nere.
