Terre Nere Etna Rosso Calderara Sottana 2017

Our Calderara Sottana is a single vineyard wine produced only from vineyards between 50-100 years old. Of all our single vineyard wines it is perhaps the most complete: much like a wide angle lens encompasses the most ample panorama, so Calderara seems to contain and display the widest spectrum of flavors, bouquets, nuances.

Colour

Pale ruby with mahogany hues.

Bouquet

Penetrating bouquet, rich ripe fruit and spice.

Flavour

Structured, full and complex, with rich tannic feel.

Pairing

Excellent with meat and seasoned cheese.
