2018 Tenuta Delle Terre Nere Santo Spirito Etna Rosso
Santo Spirito is adjacent to Guardiola’s northern boundary and lower in altitude as its slopes descend towards the Alcantara valley. And though adjacent, it couldn’t be more different. The soil of Santo Spirito is deep and rich volcanic ash, its grass a lush emerald green, and the vines vigorous and abundant. Santo Spirito’s wines are luscious, seductive, and fleshy, yet still with exceptional balance and purity.
A tight, linear red, showing cherry, watermelon and orange-peel aromas with hints of violets. It’s medium-bodied with a solid center palate and a racy finish.
