Details of wine

This wine was first made in 2005. It is a wine made only from indigenous varieties: Carricante, Catarratto, Grecanico, Inzolia, and Minnella. The Carricante grape dominates the blend with roughly 65%, which gives a still wine. This blend of grapes, all from old vineyards, provides a drinkable wine which, when ageing, boosts the noblesse of the Etna and its remarkable terroir.

Name: Tenuta delle Terre Nere
Start-up year: 2002
Cultivated hectares: 32
Winemaker name: Calogero Statella
Address: Contrada Calderara - Randazzo (CT)
Web Site: www.tenutaterrenere.com

Tenuta delle Terre Nere is located in Sicily, on the northern slopes of the Etna Volcano. The estate is made up of roughly 30 hectares, of which 21 are vineyards. Roughly 4.5 of these have been uprooted (in the Calderara cru) and replanted, having let the soil “rest”. The soils differ vastly from patch to patch. 700,000 years of volcanic eruptions have created endless soil differentiations, many of which are radical. In this area the soil is roughly volcanic ash specked by black pumice and much more solid volcanic rock as well. Rocky is putting it mildly. The 2004 vintage marked the real birth of Tenuta delle Terre Nere, because for the first time the estate was self sufficient, and the grapes produced were vinified at the estate’s new cellars. From 2007 vintage Tenuta delle Terre Nere produces organic wines.
