The Etna Rosso Santo Spirito of Tenuta delle Terre Nere was born in vineyards located in the municipality of Castiglione di Sicilia, in the most suitable districts of the northern slope of Etna.
It is produced with Nerello Mascalese and Nerello hood grapes, harvested during the second decade of October. Fermentation takes place in barriques at a controlled temperature of 28-30 ° C. Subsequently the wine ages in barrique for 16-18 months, before being bottled.
The Santo Spirito is characterized by an intense ruby red color. The nose opens with intense floral hints, enriched with pleasant spicy notes. On the palate it is broad, velvety and pleasantly creamy.
Perfect to accompany first courses with meat sauce and roasts, it is ideal in combination with game and stews
90+ pts (WA) - Luminous deep red. Easygoing red cherry and violet aromas on the fresh nose. Then bright and juicy, with straightforward flavors of red cherry, and minerals lifted by good inner-mouth violet perfume. Closes with a medium-bodied mouthfeel, hints of cranberry and building but polished tannins. Very easygoing and full of early appeal, but this strikes me as a little less complex than past Santo Spirito vintages.
