Tenuta delle Terre Nere 2017 Etna Rosso GuardiolaRegular price £35
Guardiola is one of what Marco de Grazia calls his 'Premier Cru' vineyards. Ranging from 800-1,000m altitude, it is an extraordinary site, and home to old Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio bush vines. The wine these low-yielding vines make is special. Although it drinks very well from release, it really unfurls with a few years of bottle age, unveiling layer upon layer of raspberry-led complexity.
1.5 hectare vineyard. Vines 50-70 years old. Aged in French oak for 16-18 months and one month in steel.
