TENUTA DELLE TERRE NERE Etna Rosso 'Prephylloxera' 2012


2014 TOP 100 WINES | Rank #1
>The Tenuta delle Terre Nere Etna Rosso 'Prephylloxera' is a remarkable showing in 2012. This outstanding blend of Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio dazzles with its beautiful aromas of fresh strawberries and raspberries which are followed by smoke, minerals and a beautiful dried rose petal character. A completely compelling wine that is elegant and pure showing lovely balance, focus and finesse with a gorgeous inner sweetness. The finish explodes with juicy red fruits before gripping a firm hold and lingering on and on. This is a truly magnificent effort and deserves to be mentioned among the best wines in the world.
