Tenuta delle Terre Nere

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese Blend 2017

All over wonderful but more powerful than you think. Best enjoyed with substance.

Sandpaper tannins and fully luscious fruit - dried strawberries and preserved raspberries and maraschino cherries and, it's Etna, so lots of minerality. The Etna for the main course.

Murgo

Etna Rosso Nerello Mascalese 2016

Really enjoyable, higher acid, light body, complexity of some earth or mineral notes. Similar to a Pinot Noir. Paired well with multiple courses. Time to seek out more Etna Rosso — 17 days ago

MAGMA Etna Nerello Mascalese 2016

The 2016 'Magma' Rosso is the "Grand Vin" from Cornelissen and was sourced from the Contrada Barbabecchi, which was planted in 1910 and situated at 910 meters above sea level. The Barbabecchi Vineyard is positioned at a North-North East exposure, and consists of ungrafted 100+ year old vines of Nerello Mascalese. The resultant wine is simply magnificent, as it slowly unwinds and begins to release a wonderful range of aromatics, including dried dark cherries and ripe red plums, which are woven together with exotic spices, eucalyptus, dried florals, dusty leather, blood orange and a subtle hint of cedar all taking shape beautifully in the glass. This impeccably structured wine continues to impress on the palate with its remarkable overall depth and precise concentration through the incredibly long finish. While already showing so much, this has a tremendous amount of potential to age beautifully for many years to come. Overall, this is another brilliant effort from Frank Cornelissen, and is amongst one of the most fascinating wines you will find in all of Italy. — 12 days ago
