TENUTA DELLE TERRE NERE Etna Rosso 'Prephylloxera' 2013


2015 TOP 100 WINES | Rank #21

The 2013 Prephylloxera also known as 'La Vigna di Don Peppino' is an absolutely gorgeous blend of Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio from Marco de Grazia. The grapes have been sourced from 130-year-old vines, which have survived phylloxera and still stand on their original rootstocks. As the wine itself begins to open, it delivers striking aromas of fresh cherries, raspberries and strawberries, which are woven together beautifully with fresh spring floral, rose petals, licorice and spices. This continues to impress with its overall impeccable balance, finesse and precision. Everything comes together seamlessly, with wonderful elegance on the pure, silky finish as this leaves behind wonderful flavors of red fruits and spices. (Best 2017-2033) - July, 2015 (JD)
