Terre Nere 'Vigna di Don Peppino' 2016 PRE-PHYLLOXERA VINES

“In front and to the right of our cellar in Calderara Sottana there are two parcels, in the midst of a larger vineyard that have survived phylloxera. They, therefore, are over 130 years old and stand on their original rootstock. In 2006 it was decided to vinify the grapes from those parcels separately. 2006 was a great vintage, rather on the monumental side. These parcels yielded a wine of such unearthly finesse that, although the wine from the neighboring old vines was a real beauty, the Prephylloxera, displaying a very similar character, seemed to feed from heavenly pastures: the quintessence of Calderara. It is a bit shier and will need more time than its younger sibling. I rarely advise decanting a wine, but in this case I do. Its elegance is measured, its authority understated, its sophistication effortless. A grand wine.' Marc de Grazia
