Lemon cream, citrus blossoms, supple texture lifted by crisp acidity and plenty of minerality. Plus that added note of volcanic smoke. Think Meursault meets an Italian Volcano.

Tenuta Terre Nere is an estate founded by famed Italian-American importer Marc de Grazia almost 30 years ago. Marc is a true wine industry “insider” and consummate professional whose tastes used to lean a bit to the modern side of winemaking. But his neighbors include the Benanti Brothers, staunch supporters of their family’s old-school Etna roots, Frank Cornelissen, a Belgian born implant who is one of the world’s foremost proponents of natural, untouched winemaking and Salvo Foti, a roaming consultant and sort of a mystic of Volcanic wines.

All of these vignerons and many more are constantly sharing ideas and learning from each other. And they all share a commitment to practicing the best, sustainable viticulture they can. Marc has always farmed organically, and his attention to his vineyards is his primary passion. He has studied and isolated the unique terroirs of his property and has become an expert on all things in the earth of Mt. Etna.

In the cellar his approach is loosely defined as “Burgundian”. He ferments in both barrels and tanks and ages his wines in a combination of small and large barrels, then racks them and returns them to tanks for a month to settle before bottling unfined and unfiltered. The goal is to make elegant, graceful wines that perfectly display the savory, mineral and earthy qualities of Etna terroir.

Etna White

Favorite label for Etna whites; volcanic yes, but also some layers and just the right body. Very able daily drinker...
