TENUTA DELLE TERRE NERE Etna Bianco 'Calderara Sottana' 2014

The 2014 Calderara Sottana Bianco is an absolutely phenomenal 100% Carricante, which is sourced from the volcanic rich soils surrounding Mt. Etna. This gorgeous white immediately delivers striking aromas of tropical fruits freshly, fresh sliced pear, lemon zest, smoky minerals, saline, floral and a hint of toasted notes all coming together beautifully in this seductive Bianco. On the palate this offers a lovely round texture and demonstrates remarkable balance and precision through the brilliant, mineral infused finish as it leaves behind delicious tropical notes and smoky minerals lingering on. The decision by Marco de Grazia to focus on making whites from his single vineyard cru's has paid off handsomely, as this wine magnificently showcases the rocky, mineral rich, volcanic terroir of Calderara Sottana. A flat out spectacular effort. (Best 2016-2024) - July, 2016 (JD)
