Scarpetta Squadra Rosso Terre Siciliane 2015 Product #32022 (In Stock)
Scarpetta Squadra Rosso Terre Siciliane 2015 Scarpetta Squadra Rosso Terre Siciliane 2015

What happens with a bicycle-racing winemaker in Sicily meets a bunch of French Laundry alums who run an elevated casual Italian restaurant in Colorado?  In this case, yumminess ensues!  From vineyards at about 3,000 feet elevation in Western Sicily, this is rich Nero d'Avola (75%) and Nerello Mascallese made in tank - two grapes that only really shine in Sicily!  It really pops with ripe, juicy, red currant and cherry fruit layered with sweet spice and a touch of enlivening herb.  Finishing clean and very fresh, it's a fun solo sipper and a great match for any warm weather food.

Centonze Frappato 2015 Product #31882 (In Stock)
Centonze Frappato 2015 Centonze Frappato 2015

An important Sicilian grape most often blended (acknowledged or not) to give Nero d'Avola some freshness. Here you'll find gently roasted strawberry and rhubarb compote with touches of ginger and spice.  Round and mouthfilling but not at all heavy, this is a killer match with cured meats of all kinds.

"Bright red-ruby. Intense strawberry and red cherry aromas and flavors are bright, juicy and multilayered. Rich and dense, delivering lively acidity; a hint of violet lifts the red berry and mineral flavors on the long, bright finish."   Vinous (D'Agata) 91 points

Terre Nere Etna Rosso 2015 Product #32154 (In Stock)
Terre Nere Etna Rosso 2015 Terre Nere Etna Rosso 2015

Over the past few years, the entry-level bottling at Marco de Grazia’s Tenuta della Terre Nere has also been one of the most exciting wines you can buy for $25.  It's a blend of Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio grown on Mt. Etna's volcanic soils and very low yields - at 35 hectoliter/hectar, lower than most Grand Cru Burgundy!   As always there are fascinating aromas of deep, dark red, fruit (raspberry, cherry, strawberry) plus notes of balsam, dried herb, and smoky mineral.  On the palate it’s very intense, even powerful, but without heaviness.  Bold raspberry fruit, dark mineral, orange peel, and pine-like flavors coat your palate and drive on through a long, lightly tannic, finish.  As Wine Advocate said in their 93 point review of the 2012, “Again, you get remarkable quality with Tenuta delle Terre Nere at impressively low price points.”  Drink now – 2025.

Terre Nere Vigne Niche Santo Spirito Santo Bianco 2015 Product #32173 (In Stock)
Terre Nere Vigne Niche Santo Spirito Santo Bianco 2015 Terre Nere Vigne Niche Santo Spirito Santo Bianco 2015

If you think "Siciliy" means "hot, flabby, thick" whites - well, just try this!  Mainly Sicily's own Carricante with small amounts of Grecanico, Inzolia and Cataratto done in tank, it's vibrant from first sniff with crisp white apple, pineapple, lemon and rosemary aromas.  On the palate, stays crisp and pure with generous orchard fruit flavors elevated by hints of rosemary and white balsamic.  A better version of the Vinous 92 point 2014!

Terre Nere Vigne Niche Calderara Sottana Bianco 2015 Product #32174 (In Stock)
Terre Nere Vigne Niche Calderara Sottana Bianco 2015 Terre Nere Vigne Niche Calderara Sottana Bianco 2015

Think of this as "white Burgundy goes to Sicily" and you'll be on the right track.  A touch of oak adds spice and creaminess to the peach, pear and golden apple fruit on the nose and palate.  There's fine minerality here and plenty of lemony drive, perfectly balancing the wine's richness and adding excitement on the long, peach and buttered pear finish. Very limited, very delicious.

Terre Nere Feudo Di Mezzo 2014 Product #32160 (In Stock)
Terre Nere Feudo Di Mezzo 2014 Terre Nere Feudo Di Mezzo 2014

Decant 1 hour and serve with lamb or other rich, savory, food.

"Super-ripe aromas of red cherry, raspberry nectar and marzipan. Voluptuous and fleshy on the palate, but with plenty of harmonious acidity giving shape to the deep, ripely sweet flavors of red cherry, mocha and marzipan. Rising but polished tannins provide serious spine and support the sweet fleshy fruit. The finish is long, fresh and mineral."  Vinous 92 points

Terre Nere Calderara Sottana 2014 Product #32161 (In Stock)
Terre Nere Calderara Sottana 2014 Terre Nere Calderara Sottana 2014

"Captivating aromas of sweet cherry, crushed rocks and violet. Juicy, suave and perfumed, showing excellent vinosity to the complex, very precise flavors of plum, sour red cherries and dried herbs. Fine-grained tannins and lovely lingering aromatic perfume are featured on the long, very pure finish. Another superb vintage for this bottling, which is the most Burgundian of all of Terre Nere’s various Etna Rosso crus. It also strikes me as having less of an alcohol thrust than the other reds made at Terre Nere in this vintage."  Vinous 92+ points

"A subtle, harmonious version that layers supple tannins and smoky minerality with flavors of plumped cherry, star anise, fig cake and orange bergamot. Dense and well-knit, with a persistent finish. Best from 2018 through 2028."Wine Spectator 92 points
