Terre Nere Mt Etna

Tenuta Delle Terre Nere make genuine single vineyard wines with each Cru having a unique site varying not only in altitude but also in soil composits - some being rich in deep volcanic ash or conversely planted amongst fist sized pumice. All of the Crus are located on the northern slopes of the volcano, in the townships of Castiglione di Sicilia and Randazzo between 600 and 1000 metres above sea level in the “belt” that extends from the village of Solicchiata to the town of Randazzo, the area traditionally recognized as the very finest of the entire appellation for the local red grape varieties Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio.

"A Barolo lover such as Marc de Grazia couldn’t fail to grasp the immense potential of Etna relative to the possibility of bottling many different cru wines. Thanks to volcanic eruptions that occurred over the centuries and created lava stratifications of different ages and compositions, Etna can give terroir-driven wines that are truly unique depending on exactly where the grapes are grown. De Grazia has incessantly promoted the differences and characteristics of each contrada (Etna’s cru areas) he farms. And though there are many who would much rather have preferred to turn Etna into one large catch-all denomination, De Grazia deserves immense praise for having fought this, realizing that Etna and its producers were sitting on a gold mine that just needed to be accessed correctly. His red wines can rank among Italy’s best, and in Etna’s fantastic 2014 vintage many look likely to reach epic status."
