Why do we love it?

Tenuta Delle Terre Nere Etna Rosso San Lorenzo 2016 is the 9th best wine of the world for 2018 according to Wine Spectator! With the astronomical rating of 95/100, it made it to the top ten among wine legends such as Sassicaia and Dom Perignon!

And now that we've got your attention, we'll tell you a few more things to have 1-2 more reasons to desperately want it, in your collection or in your glass! As its name betrays, it comes from the volcanic vineyards of Mount Etna. And as if that was not enough, the San Lorenzo vineyard is at an altitude of 762 meters and the vines are 70+ years old. The terroir of San Lorenzo was created by the eruptive center of Ellittico and is the oldest piece of land on which one may plant. The blend of Nerello Mascalese (98%) - Nerello Cappuccio (2%) ferments and matures in French oak barrels of 900 liters (tonneaux) for 16-18 months.

Yes, Tenuta Delle Terre Nere Etna Rosso San Lorenzo 2016 is as impressive as it sounds, and it certainly deserves to be in the Pantheon with the superwines of 2018! Unfortunately, it will soon be over, like all the nice things ... These are the last bottles. And they are very few.

Tastes Like

It has moderate ruby color with purple hues.

Intoxicating nose full of flowers such as gardenia and primrose, dense red fruit such as cherry, strawberry and sour cherry and sweet spices. The mineral character is intense with notes of wet stone and flint.

On the palate it has medium body, crisp acidity and silky tannins. The condensation of the fruit is mesmerizing and dressed in flowers, cinnamon and saltiness in an incredibly elegant bouquet. The mineral aftertaste is left in the mouth until the next sip.
