The Tenuta delle Terre Nere today owns vineyards in six districts - Calderara Sottana, San Lorenzo, Bocca d 'Orzo, Guardiola, Santo Spirito and Feudo di Mezzo.
Ten plots, covering about 15 hectares, are in Contrada Calderara Sottana, between 600 and 700 meters above sea level, on an area characterized by the highest presence of volcanic stone in the entire D.O.C.
Given the scarcity of white grapes in the area, the company also buys some lots in the municipalities of Milo and Biancavilla. The company produces two versions of Etna Bianco. One from the assembly of Carricante, Catarratto, Grecanico and Inzolia. One, in a very limited quantity, of only Carricante, fermented and aged in wood, conceived for a long aging.
The high quality Etna Rosso derives from the vinification of Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio, from both young and old vines from all the owned vineyards, and also from vineyards under management and from purchased grapes. Also from Nerello Mascalese and Cappuccio is our Etna Rosato, also a wine of great value and now highly sought after for its very special, luminous and mineral nature.
