SCORPUS: Dunkle Schokolade, Zimt und Gewürznelke im Duft. Im Mund mollig und weich, sehr feines, seidiges Tannin in guter Dosis, reife Säure, ein Sangiovese im Sonntagsanzug, mit Fülle und Kraft eher denn mit urwüchsiger Wildheit.


AURONERA: Röstiges Neuholz, Noten von Trockenfleisch, Thymian und Salbei. Bitterschokolade. im Mund druckvoll mit feinem, aber durchaus auch strukturiertem Tannin, dicht, »warm« und mollig, aber auch mit viel Saftigkeit und einer mineralsichen Tönung, die Frische verleiht. Noch jugendlich-kompakt, mit sehr guten Proportionen und bestem reifepotenzial.

Paula Bosch: Your expertise on Terra Nera

Paula Bosch was the first female sommelière in star gastronomy. She evaluated our wines. “Repeated tank and barrel samples, vintage 2015 Terra Nera, Maremma, Tuscany, provides both nasal and olfactory properties that are unique to these wines and terrain. I have been convinced of this since the first tasting.  These wines are even more flavourful, with a hard to define iron ore note, a certain terroir note, and also slate tones that I know from the Moselle with the red wines from Pinot Noir.  These characteristics are remarkable and, for me, concise and clear to recognize in the wines of Terra Nera.” (Paula Bosch, 2016)
