2014 Tenuta delle Terre Nere Etna Rosso

Etna DOC Nerello Mascalese more

2/5/2016 - Dale M wrote: 88 points

First go with this vintage and it continues to deliver a unique Sicilian red at a sub $20 price tag. love the interplay of lush red fruits and fresh herbs, but more freshness and acidity than say a Grenache based wine.

Very young - tight and tannic. Opened in the glass. Improved over the next two nights - showing more appealing fruit and richness. Clearly, needs time. Try a bottle next fall when the wine is two years after the harvest.

Something a little different here. Baking spice, stewed apple, dried apricot. The producer's website doesn't specify, but this has to have seen some malo and old oak. They lend the wine a round and cuddly profile. Very little acid to speak of, so this is no keeper. Who cares, it's an intriguing blend from an intriguing region.

This bottle seems even more knit than last with quite prominent and slightly bitter tannins on the palate. The nose is better but also less floral and open than I remember from previous bottles. Still very enjoyable though.

I find it hard to believe the change in character is due to maturation, since it's just two months since I first had this wine. Probably bottle variation.

2008 Tenuta delle Terre Nere Etna Il Quadro delle Rose Feudo di Mezzo

Etna DOC Nerello Mascalese more

Meaty, sinewy, iron, black fruits, a touch of sweet oak. Extremely tannic from the first sip to the last. Lots of extract and many hard edges. As another reviewer commented, this was missing the freshness of the basic Etna Rosso, and I'd add the complexity of the Prephylloxera. Decanted immediately before serving, which I wouldn't repeat if I could do it again—the passage of time only served to bring out the harsh edges. Probably best to revisit this in 3-5 years. Rated 1 on a scale of -1 to 3.

Decanted for about 1.5 hours prior to serving; The nose opened up with some air to reveal a firm core of cherries, violets and earth; On the palate, there was still a fair amount of structure and tannin, although it did show very well-polished flavors of red fruits, mineral and florals; No rush on these bottles, but they're starting to drink well with significant aeration

Drank well after a two hour decant. Cherry, savory notes and some spice and ash. Still a bit tight, and could use some more time, but worked very well with food. Tannins need to integrate a bit, but the fruit and acidity offer good enough balance to allow that.

In the beginning simply to rich and warm (if not to say hot). After two hours it opend up a bit. Very very young. And by the time of tasting probably already a bit too loaded.

Warm nose of ripe fruit, though finished in a drier style, with smokey-ashy tones. Complex, made of five grapes from 25-60 year old vines. Finish just a bit hot, '14 must have been a warm vintage.

Mine. Coconut, bayberry and crayola, spice comes along, raw walnut tannins on the finish. Deeo and bright berry-cherry color with hints of orange indicating a few years of bottle age, pinot-esque body; excellent now but will reward further cellaring.

Cork barely stained. Very clear, bright red--color somewhere between Barolo and Pinot Noir. Deep forest-y and stony aromas. Assertive. Favors savory notes over sweetness of fruit. Impressive. Based on this bottle, some years to go.

This bottle was somewhat closed on opening, improving after 6-8 hours in the carafe. The palate has a touch more spice and dried herb than some of the other Terre Nere single vineyard offerings. Attractive bright Nerello red fruit. Some new oak, but not over the top (18 months in barrique). I seem to prefer the freshness and minerality of the entry level Etna Rosso which doesn't see barrique, but rather large oak botti.

Drank this too early probably, either off bottle or in a tunnel and not finding its way out, thin, green, discombobulated. Ended up cooking some small onions in the last part of the bottle.

Pretty straw color; subtle nose of flowers give way to ripe fruit and minerals that continue on the palate, with hints of citrus; round, full body, nice but not dominant acid level; good structure and well integrated overall, the best QPR among the Terre Nere wines, which tend to be overpriced.

Notes of ripe red berry and currant fruit, spice, dark licorice, herbs. Dry w/ crisp acidity, fine tannin and a medium finish. I found this as the biggest yet for this bottling. Still a bit young and primary, should hold for 6-12 months. But did settle down and opened up nicely after a few hours to breathe.

Pure, fresh, supple, and trimmer proportioned with dried red fruit, licorice, volcanic rock, and herbal notes that seem characteristic of the appellation. Adds a bit of intensity and grip on the finish. There is good value here for ~$16.

45 minute decant, the nose is minerals and cherry with a little spiciness added in. The palate is on the juicy side with delicate acidity and minimal tannins and flavors of cherry, cinnamon and light minerality. A thinner mouthfeel and a medium finish make this a reasonable expression of this nerello mascalase/cappucio blend.

Light translucent ruby in the glass; "mentholated" cherries on the primary nose.

Still quite tannic on the palate; taut, adequate acidity - very young, but with a lot of potential.

Väldigt mycket PN, både i färg, doft och smak. Mer burgundisk än nya världen. Kryddig, skogsbär, inledningsvis lite funkig men senare bara elegant. Lite sötfruktig, diskreta mjuka tanniner, liten stramhet och bra längd.
