TENUTA DELLE TERRE NERE Etna Rosso 'Prephylloxera' 2015

The 2015 'Prephylloxera' is a simply brilliant showing in this vintage. This comes from two parcels in the midst of Calderara Sottana that have survived phylloxera, which are now 130 years old and stand on their original rootstock. This fantastic blend of 98% Nerello Mascalese, 2% Nerello Cappuccio demonstrates striking purity and finesse. The aromatics are gorgeous, with fresh red fruits and cassis which combine with floral, spices, wet stones and a touch of smoke all taking shape. On the palate this is beautifully textured and focused with remarkable overall balance. It remains fresh and inviting, as it continues to dazzle through the long finish.
