Tenuta delle Terre Nere

San Lorenzo Etna Rosso Nerello Cappuccio Nerello Mascalese

Most powerful but not my favorite of the crus. Fruit is more content rated but lack some of the florals and red fruit finesse — a month ago

Chardonnay Lorenzo Vineyard 2019

Off the truck again, nice Chardonnay considering I didn’t give it a proper hold. Next bottle will be held in storage.

Winemaker’s Notes

The old vines at Lorenzo Vineyard produce one of our most distinctive wines each vintage - a bottling of deep concentration and completely transparent style that simply cannot be replicated elsewhere – terroir in action! These deep-rooted, low-yielding old vines offer such an astonishing level of dense fruit extract and botanical, savory complexity, that winemaking technique fades into the background as the vineyard expression holds sway. Very few vineyards are this dynamic.

For the 2019 bottling, there’s slightly less acidity than its 2018 predecessor, so this vintage has an opulence and viscosity that amplifies the texture of the wine, creating a sense of oily richness that is simply magical.

Piercing aromas of grapefruit and pear with thyme blossom, fresh mint, lemongrass, and lilac. The palate is immediately tangy and electric, precise and dynamic, before the wine’s deep texture and oily viscosity absorbs this vibrancy. Notes of sweet sage and fragrant botanicals dart in and out. The flavors are long, intense, and drawn out, pulsating to a long finish that features white pepper, grapefruit zest and flint. Serve at 58F – not too cool – and drink between 2022 and 2032.

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2017

Incredibly herbal (fennel and tarragon) on the nose along with hints of baking spices. Ripe dark fruit (plums and currants) on the pallet. Light and easy to drink. Uniquely different but still Amarone! — 3 months ago
