About

"Fantastic aromas of flowers, dark berries and cherries follow through to a full body, round and velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. Needs a year or to two soften the tannins. Drink in 2020."

93 Ian Dagata - Vinous Media

"Bright red. Very perfumed nose of red cherry, raspberry jam, cinnamon, nutmeg and minerals complicated by tar and shoe polish. Clean, fresh and juicy, but with a sultry quality to the mineral but also ripe red berry and cherry flavors. Clean and fresh on the long, stoney finish. A knockout Santo Spirito that combines size and luscious sweetness like no other Etna Rosso from Terre Nere this year, but it doesn’t quite have the depth or complexity of the best wines from the estate this year."

93 Wine Spectator

"Coffee bean and dried sage accents thread through the rich dried cherry and fig cake flavors in this chewy, medium- to full-bodied red. This is bright and expressive now, but decant or age this to enjoy all its nuance. Firm, herbed finish. Best from 2020 through 2030. 650 cases made."

Product Description:

"The two vineyards in Santo Spirito were the last plots acquired by Terre Nere, located adjacent to Guardiola’s northern boundary, and lower in altitude, as its slopes descend toward the Alcantara valley. Composed of 98% Nerello Mascalese, 2% Nerello Cappuccio from 40-100 year old vines grown in deep volcanic soils. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation and aging in French oak. The wine is bottled after 18 months of oak aging." -Importer
