Notes from Skurnik:
"Proprietor Marc de Grazia is one of the pioneers of the Etna. Not only was he among the first producers to recognize the value of these once-forgotten, ancient terroirs, he also was the first producer to bring attention to the specific qualities of these vineyards by bottling single-parcel Nerellos that have become reference-point wines for the Etna.
Calderara displays a wide spectrum of flavors, bouquets and nuances; floral and spicy, leathery and aromatic, it delivers a wonderful filling sensation on the palate. Pairs well with poulty, red meats, game, pasta, pecorino and bread. 50 to 100-year-old Nerello Mascalese vines grown on the northern slope of Mount Etna at 600-650 meters above sea level."
