Calderara Sottana

Calderara Sottana Etna Rosso from the Tenuta delle Terre Nere winery takes its name from the "Calderara Sottana" district, where the vineyards are located and where the Nerello Mascalese grapes for this wine originate in Sicily (Italy). The vineyards are situated approximately 600 meters above sea level and benefit from a unique terroir, known and renowned for being one of the rockiest in the area and is made from grapes sourced from very old vines (between 50 and 100 years old). Alcoholic fermentation occurs in stainless steel at controlled temperatures, followed by spontaneous malolactic fermentation. After aging for 14 months in barrels and a subsequent period in the bottle, the wine displays a bouquet of red flowers, violets, small fruits, pepper, and graphite. The palate is full-bodied and majestic, with freshness and elegance, spicy and mineral nuances, a long persistence, and a balsamic finish. Excellent for pairing with pork and grilled red meats. Available for deliveries within Metro Manila.

This red wine from Sicily (Italy) has aromas of flowers, spice, and leather. It delivers a wonderful filling sensation on the palate, yet stepping lightly. Great with poultry, game and pasta.

Sicily, Italy: Tenuta delle Terre Nere

Tenuta delle Terre Nere is the fruit of over 30 years of passion and work in the world of fine wine. And an extraordinary location, as well - this "island within an island" that is the Etna. A place where nature is prodigal but also severe. And here De Grazia tries with all his heart to express as purely as possible the refined and multifaceted microcosm of this ancient volcanic land. With respect, care and hard farm work, always in organic balance.

The estate's philosophy is simple. Given an extreme climate, in order to obtain the best and most consistent ripening, our attention must focus on vineyard management. The finest workmanship in all aspects of viticulture is the first thing that sets us apart. And what enables us, bringing home exceptionally fine grapes, not to be invasive in our cellar work. A work best described as aimed above all at expressing the character of our varieties in their specific terroir.
