14%Abv, 10-50 year old vines. 
Nerello Mascalese 95% and Nerello Cappuccio 5%

At Terre Nere vinification is simple, classic, and Burgundian in technique. Alcoholic fermentation and maceration on the skins last from 10 to 15 days; malolactic fermentation and maturation are carried out in oak (25% new).  After 18 months the wine is bottled without filtering. Made from very fine Nerello Mascalese 95% and Nerello Cappuccio 5% from low yielding vineyards (35 Hl. Per hectar), both young and old. The wine  continues its life in wood until bottled roughly one year after harvest. Even young it is a distinguished wine. Fresh, fragrant, beautifully slender and with a fine grip, it has a natural polish, and in aging, gathers into rich complexity.

"This saline, floral entry-level Etna Rosso is always a great buy."
