Etna Rosso, Calderara Sottana, 2020

Equiv. £37.50 per bottle

Tasting Note:

Like San Lorenzo, Calderara Sottana is one the great Grand Crus of Etna and benefits from what the estate describes as “true Elliptical terroir.” Hard, black basalt stones dot the vineyard at an altitude of 600-700m. The 2020 is seriously lifted and perfumed with enormous substance underlying. More compact tannins, aromatic with cut flowers and herbs, pink and white pepper, red fruits and spice, pale, intense and very long, Calderara is high in acidity, yet cannot be described as a wine of power or bold flavours, instead it is just really long and linear and beautifully balanced. Vine age ranges from 50-100 years old and the wine was aged in barrique and tonneaux for 14 months
