Terre Nere Etna Bianco 2016 Product #32884 (In Stock)
Terre Nere Etna Bianco 2016 Terre Nere Etna Bianco 2016

Think of this as a cross between Chardonnay (bit of richness, a touch of oak) and zesty Sauvignon Blanc (stone fruit, citrus, herb) and you'll be in the general ballpark.  A deliciously ripe and fresh white to sip and savor.

"Harmonious, lively aromas and flavors of white stone fruit and aromatic herbs. Bright and juicy, with a refreshing saline bite on the long smooth finish. Less concentrated than some past vintages of Etna Bianco from Terre Nere, but remarkably fresh and easy to drink. A lovely Etna Bianco that mercifully doesn’t taste of Chardonnay or other varieties that have no place on Etna. This is a steal for the price."  Vinous (d'Agata) 91 points

"Plenty of cooked pineapple and pear aromas with some pumice and rock undertones. Full body, layered and flavorful with lots of sliced lemon and green apple character. A vivid and flavorful wine. Drink now."  James Suckling 93 points

Terre Nere Etna Rosso Santo Spirito 2015 Product #32960 (In Stock)
Terre Nere Etna Rosso Santo Spirito 2015 Terre Nere Etna Rosso Santo Spirito 2015

The two vineyards in Santo Spirito were the last plots acquired by Terre Nere and are a bit further down Mount Etna's slopes than the estate's other vineyards.  The site's deep volcanic ash soils and slightly warmer microclimate help these 40-100 year-old vines develop superb richness and plushness of texture.  A year and a half in French oak rounds off tannins without adding overt oaky notes.  Utterly irresistible now and improving through 2025.

"Fantastic aromas of flowers, dark berries and cherries follow through to a full body, round and velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. Needs a year or to two soften the tannins. Drink in 2020."  James Suckling 94 points

"Very perfumed nose of red cherry, raspberry jam, cinnamon, nutmeg and minerals complicated by tar and shoe polish. Clean, fresh and juicy, but with a sultry quality to the mineral but also ripe red berry and cherry flavors. Clean and fresh on the long, stoney finish. A knockout Santo Spirito that combines size and luscious sweetness like no other Etna Rosso from Terre Nere this year."  Vinous (d'Agata) 94 points

Terre Nere Etna Rosso Calderara Sottana 2015 Product #32963 (In Stock)
Terre Nere Etna Rosso Calderara Sottana 2015 Terre Nere Etna Rosso Calderara Sottana 2015

Of all Terre Nere's vineyards, Calderara Sottana is the stoniest, with black volcanic rocks littering the soil and locking in daytime heat.  These 50-100 year-old vines create a floral, spicy, wine that in 2015 will tempt immediately and reward a decade plus of cellar time.

"Ripe red cherries, treacle tart, sour plums, and some blueberries frame the nose. Medium body, round tannins and a fruity finish. Drink now."  James Suckling 91 points

"Vivid medium dark red. Piercing aromas of red cherry, minerals and soy sauce. The flavors are similar to the aromas, with an underlying element of crushed rock that adds a welcome saline note contributing freshness. Very mineral round and smooth, this is atypically shaped for a Calderara Sottana Etna Rosso. Closes long with hints of orange peel, Mediterranean herbs and minerals. The bright mineral sheen and Burgundy-like aromas and flavors are typical Calderara Sottana, though this strikes me as being just a little softer and rounder than usual."  Vinous (d'Agata) 93 points
