The Etna Rosso "Calderara Sottana" is one of the most important and representative labels of the Tenuta delle Terre Nere, one of the reference producers in the Etna area. Among the first to create labels dedicated to the individual parcels of the company. Fruit of Nerello Mascalese grapes combined with a residual share of Nerello Cappuccio from Calderara Sottana: vineyard located between 600 and 700 m above sea level, its name alone is enough to evoke the warmth that the light stones of pumice stone and basalt of which is completely covered the ground they retain and release during the cool nights, favoring a perfect ripening of the bunches. Aged in French oak woods for a period ranging from 16 to 18 months and for a final month in steel.

The Caldera Sottana has a pleasant ruby-colored appearance and a fruity and sweet aroma, where the hints of ripe fruit and spicy are complementary. It caresses the palate with balance and good intensity, conquers it with its freshness and fragrance. With a firm tannin but equally integrated into the overall texture, it is a wine that, over the years, acquires complexity and richness, always maintaining an incredible finesse. A wine to combine with particularly elegant dishes.
