International Wine Report Top 100 2014 - Prephylloxera 2012

 

We are honored to have received an important recognition for our Prephylloxera 2012, which was selected as the best wine in the Top 100 of  International Wine Report.

 

Here is the review:

 

The Tenuta delle Terre Nere Etna Rosso 'Prephylloxera' is a remarkable showing in 2012. This outstanding blend of Nerello Mascalese and Nerello Cappuccio dazzles with its beautiful aromas of fresh strawberries and raspberries which are followed by smoke, minerals and a beautiful dried rose petal character. A completely compelling wine that is elegant and pure showing lovely balance, focus and finesse with a gorgeous inner sweetness. The finish explodes with juicy red fruits before gripping a firm hold and lingering on and on. This is a truly magnificent effort and deserves to be mentioned among the best wines in the world. (Best 2016-2030) - October, 2014 (JD)
