The Marken Institut Munich (marke41.de) made Terra Nera the cover story in issue 4/2023.
Newly added to Silkes Weinkeller are our popular Terra Nera wines SCORPUS and AURONERA:
“In a dark red robe, the Terra Nera AURONERA presents itself to its connoisseur. Purple highlights, a deep purple core and garnet reflections give it a lively exterior…”
“Exclusively Sangiovese gets into the Terra Nera SCORPUS. With this wine, the cellar master tells the story of the famous charioteer Flavius Scorpus, who lived in ancient Rome…”
We are pleased that our Terra Nera wines are a fitting addition to the portfolio of Silkes Weinkeller.
AURONERA classic was awarded 94+ points by Falstaff.
What the experts say: On the nose cinnamon and milk chocolate, cocoa bean, elderberry juice, dark cherry and thyme, menthol. In the mouth a dense, firm tannin makes powerful pressure, the wine has a long lasting plateau phase that brings together tension and concentration at a high level and hints at excellent aging potential. Young blood! And not saturating.
Vitus Steinhorst, head buyer at Rindchen, has tested our newcomer ANDRAEMO and recommends it as THE SECRET TIP: “A dream in black … Ever since I got to know the ANDRAEMO made of Syrah and Cabernet, I’ve wanted it for Rindchen.”
Besides ANDRAEMO, our other wines SCORPUS and AURONERA are also available online.
SCORPUS received a gold medal at the winter tasting 2021 of the Berliner Wine Trophy.
Berliner Wine Trophy the World’s Largest OIV Wine Competition. Since the patronage of the OIV in 2004, the Berliner Wine Trophy has become the world’s largest wine competition and Germany’s most important international wine challenge.
AURONERA and SCORPUS were awarded 93+ and 92 points, respectively, as Fallstaff Favourites .
To be considered as a Falstaff Favourite, a wine must be of a select top class. The minimum number of points required for the award is 92 out of 100, making the wine one of the very best of its kind. In this luxury category, the wine price has no upper limit.
Markus Giese and his team visited us at our winery and summarized our origins and the history behind our wine in this ZDF report:
SCORPUS was awarded a silver medal for Italy in the 2021 edition of Mundus Vini.
Mundus Vini is one of the most important international wine competitions annually, taking place in Germany. It was founded by the publishing house Meininger Verlag with the aim of promoting the quality and marketing of the registered wines.
Oenologists and wine experts evaluate the products by blindly sampling them and awarding the grade according to the international 100-point system of the International Wine Organization (OIV), which is also recognized by the Union Internationale des Oenologues (UIOE).
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)
