Tenuta delle Terre Nere Etna Rosso Calderara Sottana 2016

Calderera Sottana is arguably the grandest cru on Mt Etna. It's also by far the stoniest, easily recognisable at first sight.The spectrum of aromas are wide and complex, the floral perfume intense and the structure wonderfully tight and yet strangely and beautifully creamy. These are 50-80 year old vines planted at 650-700m above sea level in the rockiest, black volcanic pumice imaginable, which as the name suggests retains a cauldron-like heat well into the evening. In kinship it shares the velvety power one associates with Vosne-Romanee and it ages beautifully over at least 6 years.
