Vino Di Anna - Palmentino Vino Rosso
The sixth wine made in our 250 + year old Palmento (traditional Etnean wine vinification building). Organically grown Nerello Mascalese grapes (90%) were hand harvested from 60-100 year old bush vines grown on the northern face of Mt Etna and transported to our Palmento in Solicchiata. Small amounts of Nerello Cappuccio (2%), Alicante (Grenache) (3%) and the indigenous white grapes, Minella, Catarratto and Grecanico (5% in total) which are co-planted in the Nerello Mascalese vineyards were harvested at the same time and included in the vinification process.
About the Winemaker:
Anna Martens and Eric Narioo started making wine together on Mount Etna in 2008. In 2010 they purchased their first vineyard of old, vine Nerello Mascelese and a 250 yr old palmen+o and wine building which they restored and “Vino di Anna” was created. Today they own 6 hectares of land which they farm biodynamically. They have extended the winery and buried 9 Georgian qvevri for vinification and maturation.
