Vino Di Anna - Jeudi 15 Rosato (2019)
Orangey/pink in colour, this wine smells of wild strawberries and flowers. Dry,
crisp and fresh it has plenty of red fruit flavours; red currants and cherries, balanced
by a fine palate structure. It is savoury in style with a mineral backbone.
́Vino di Anna·sμ second Rosato. In 2019, organically grown grapes were hand harvested from two vineyards to make this wine. The grapes from the ́Tartaraci vineyard were harvested on the 17th October 2019. The vines are 70 year old bush vines of Nerello Mascalese, Alicante (Grenache) and Grenanico. The white grapes were picked at the same time as the black grapes.
The field blend was placed as 100% whole bunches into three large mastellone (10hl food-grade plastic tubs). Maceration took place for three days. The fermenting must was then pressed directly into a 1500 litre Georgian qvevri. The wine finished alcoholic fermentation, underwent malolactic fermentation and was left on fine lees for 5 months. It was bottled at the end of April 2020 neither fined nor filtered.
