Guardiola (Etna Rosso DOC) Tenuta delle Terre Nere

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.
