Tenuta Delle terre Etna Rosso


On the island of Sicily, at the foot of Mount Etna, brothers Marco and Sebastian De Grazia have been running their winemaking project for more than 30 years. At Tenuta Delle Terre Nere they make refined and pure wines that express the extraordinary location they call home. Starting with excellent raw materials and winemaking with very little intervention, the De Grazia brothers’ work has helped put Etna at the top of the world wine map.

Tenuta Delle Terre Nere Etna Rosso comes from both young and old vines that grow on the north slope of Mount Etna. These vines are planted in volcanic soil at an altitude ranging from 600 to 900 metres above sea level. Organic farming is practiced and the yield is limited to 35 hl. per hectare. The harvest is carried out manually at the optimum point of ripeness.

Pure and elegant, Tenuta Delle Terre Nere Etna Rosso is a red wine with the delicacy of a Burgundy and the length of a Pinot Noir. A true representative of a promising wine region.
