List of products by brand Tenuta delle Terre Nere
Calderara Sottana is a single vineyard wine produced only from vineyards between 50-100 years old. Of all our single vineyard wines it is perhaps the most complete: much like a wide angle lens encompasses the most ample panorama, so Calderara seems to contain and display the widest spectrum of flavors, bouquets, nuances.
Etna Bianco DOC Superiore of Tenuta delle Terre Nere is produced from Carricante grapes in Milo, a territory suitable for the production of Superiori whites thanks to the perfect combination of altitude, climate and exposure to the sun. It is a sharp, slender, austere and aristocratic wine.
Etna Bianco by Tenuta delle Terre Nere is a Sicilian white wine born from the assembly of 5 Sicilian native vines: Carricante in prevalence, Catarratto, Inzolia, Grecanico and Minnella. All from old vines. A perfect, delicious and versatile wine.
Made from very fine Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio from low yielding vineyards (35 Hl. Per hectar), both young and old.
Feudo di Mezzo is the largest cru in the appellation, a homogenous character, but with clear qualitative variations – much like one could say of Clos de Vougeot in Burgundy. From the best parcels – such as our “Quadro delle Rose” - it betrays a dusky character, autumnal tones in its cedary-spicy bouquet.
Among the crus of Tenuta delle Terre Nere, Guardiola is the one with the most powerful and original character. The high altitude of the vineyards, 800-1000 meters, and the consequent aridity of the soils exacerbate the acidity of the wine and accentuate its tannins. Therefore, it takes longer to relax and express itself.
Produced from high quality Carricante grapes, Tenuta delle Terre Nere's Etna Bianco “Vigne Niche” Calderara Sottana is a cru from old and young vines. It is a wine of great complexity and longevity.
