Vino di Anna Bianco G comes from predominantly 80 year-old bush vine Grecanico, grown on the North face of Etna. Half the grapes spent a week on their skin, being foot trodden several time, the other half included some Carricante, was whole bunch, direct pressed.
The wine is dry and focused, with intense citrus aromas, grapefruit, white peach with minerality and smokiness typical of volcanic wines.
VINO DI ANNA, Anna Martens & Eric Narioo, Etna Biodynamic principles, natural
Anna Martens trained with Brian Croser for eight years and also worked with Ornellaia and Passopisciaro. She settled in Sicily with husband Eric Narioo of Les Caves de Pyrene, UK wine importers.
The Vino di Anna wines are made on their small property without much intervention, using native yeasts and no additives, save for a little SO2 in some lots (normally nothing is added at all). A variety of vessels are used for fermentation, including Palmento, old barrels and Georgian qvevri.
