Tenuta delle Terre Nere Etna Rosso 2015
|Brand||Tenuta delle Terre Nere|
Wine EnthusiastAromas of raspberry jam, Mediterranean scrub, menthol and a whiff of exotic spice lead the nose on this beautiful red. Concentrated but also boasting finesse, the juicy palate delivers black cherry, blackberry, licorice, clove, and crushed herb alongside firm, ultrafine tannins.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Etna Rosso is mostly Nerello Mascalese with some Nerello Mantellato. Old vines range from 40 to 140 years in age. This is the estate's blended red. It does not see fruit selected from a single Contrada. Instead, this wine offers a panoramic expression with fruit from various sites, soil types and altitudes. The wine displays a moderate ruby hue and offers mild aromatic intensity. You get wild berry, ash and dried rose petal, but the delivery is subdued and understated. The mouthfeel is polished and tight.
