The Terre Nere vineyards are located at extremely high altitudes - 2100' to 2900' above sea level. The hot sun, cool breeze and cold nights make Terre Nere wines extraodinarily fine and elegant. A brilliant cohesion of craft, skill and deliciousness!
Made from very fine Nerello Mascalese & Nerello Cappuccio from low yielding vineyards (35 HL per hectare), both young and old. The grapes are macerated until the end of fermentation. The wine then 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, a stage presence, as it were. And, in ageing, as its weave gathers into rich complexity, it is a wine for gentlemen.
"Lots of strawberry aromas that follow through to a full-bodied, layered palate with ripe tannins, dried-fruit and walnut undertones. From organically grown grapes. Highly Recommended."
