96pts Parker; 98pts Suckling; 95pts Wine Spectator

Wine Spectator 95 points - This seamless red effortlessly layers silky, sculpted tannins and lightly mouthwatering acidity with an array of

ripe black cherry, graphite, ground cardamom, dried fig and sweet, lightly floral almond blossom notes. Long and lingering, with a racy

hint of spicy mineral echoing on the finish. Drink now through 2030. 600 cases made. -AN. October/2018

Wine Advocate 96 points - This is Tenuta delle Terre Nere's top-shelf expression (with only 6,000 bottles produced). The 2016 Etna

Rosso Calderara Sottana Prephylloxera le Vigne di Don Peppino shows the power and the might of Etna viticulture with the delicate

grace and elegance that identifies these unique wines. This expression is expansive and generous-but in an unexpected way. The palate

is streamlined and focused, yet those fine nuances of wild berry, spice, ash and rose are wide-ranging and very long in persistence..

December/2018

James Suckling 98 points - TOP 100 ITALIAN WINES OF 2018 #36 - Intense orange-peel aromas highlight the ripe-fruit and

smoked-meat character. Full-bodied with round and chewy tannins and an intense, flavorful finish. Focused and driven. Needs time to

soften. Better in 2020.. October/2018
