Tenuta delle Terre Nere-Etna Rosso-"Santo Spirito"-2014

Tenuta delle Terre Nere
Etna Rosso
"Santo Spirito"


“Santo Spirito” is made up of two neighboring, rolling  vineyards made of deep, rich volcanic ash. 100% Nerello Masacalese. Etna Rosso from here is consistently “luscious and sensual, always seductive in its almost fleshy bouquet and buttermilk richness. Yet there’s still a balance and a purity. Very sophisticated, yes, but tender as well. Generous and vulnerable at once. Duke Ellington’s ‘Sophisticated Lady.’”  
Ian d'Agata for Vinous, December 2016: "Deep red. Fresh, very deep red cherry, almond paste, sweet spice and fresh herbs on the aromatic nose. Then vibrant, juicy and dense, showing a firm tannic backbone; lively but harmonious acidity extends the ripe deep red cherry and mineral flavors on the long, suave, complex back end. Very typical of the Santo Spirito cru. With its soft, fleshy, perfumed personality, this is readier to drink than some of the other crus from Terre Nere in 2014, but has the stuffing to age well. A truly outstanding Etna Rosso, made from grapes grown in the highest portion of Santo Spirito, not far from the Guardiola cru."
