Description

90% Nerello Mascalese, 10% Nerello Cappuccio organically grown in volcanic soils at 765 meters in altitude.  Fermentation/maceration lasts 10-15 days.  The wine ages in second and third used French oak tonneau for 10 months before bottling. 400 cases produced.

“Bright red-ruby. Very aromatic nose of sweet spices and riper red cherry, with flashes of raspberry liqueur and strawberry jam thrown in for good measure. Enters round, luscious and with outstanding inner-mouth perfume, then risingly tannic on the classically dry, mouthcoating finish. Improves markedly in the glass, showcasing a combination of minerals and of red fruit cocktail. Aged roughly ten months in used oak tonneaux, this ought to age well. From a fifteen year old vineyard of roughly 90% Nerello Mascalese and 10% Nerello Cappuccio in the Solicchiata area. Only 5,000 bottles made; outstanding first time wine from Calogero Statella, technical director at Tenuta delle Terre Nere. A star is born.” – 93 points, Vinous (09/14/2017)
