Tenuta delle Terre Nere - Etna Rosso Calderara Sottana 2021
Calderara Sottana is 100% Nerello Mascalese from 50 to 100-year-old vines on the Northern slope of the Mount Etna. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation and aging in French oak barriques, tonneaux for 16-18 months of wood aging and one month in steel. Bottled unfiltered
"From the moment the glass is tilted, the 2021 Etna Rosso Calderara Sottana Vineyard shines through as crushed stones, ash and sweet smoke give way to vivid black cherries and autumnal spice. The 2021 Etna Rosso is elegant, silky and deeply textural, with salty mineral tones and gobs of red and black fruits, all perfectly maintained by a core of vibrant acidity. This is complex yet full of energy and sultry depths, tapering off saline and structured with grippy tannins that frame a lasting resonance of licorice and plums. These old vines handled the drought of the vintage beautifully, showing only in the grit of its tannins. Otherwise, the 2021 is pure magic." - 94 points, Antonio Galloni Vinous
