“Tenuta delle Terre Nere selected three single-vineyard wines that it classifies as Grande Terroir Ellittico; the 2016 Etna Rosso Calderara Sottana is one of those three wines. The wine does indeed show a higher level of complexity and increased depth that is especially apparent in the mouth. The wine has a firm tannin backbone that bodes very well for its future evolution. This is a crisp, sharp and structured Etna red wine. Nerello Mascalese is blended with 2% Nerello Cappuccio. Some 14,000 bottles were made.2019-2035” – 94 points, Wine Advocate (December 2018)
Marco de Grazia and the formidable winemaking team at Tenuta delle Terre Nere have just completed the construction of a 270-square-meter barrel room. This new space will allow for more accuracy and temperature control during the aging process of their wines. The estate also planted new vines of Nerello Mascalese and Carricante in the Contrade Calderara and San Lorenzo.
