Vino di Anna Jeudi 15 Rosato is orangey/pink in colour, it 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.
70% of the cuvée was made from a vineyard located in the contrada “Tartaraci” (70 year old bush vines of Nerello Mascalese, Alicante (Grenache) and Grenanico), at 1000 metres of altitude, on the NW slopes of Mt Etna. 30% comes from old Nerello Mascalese bush vines, from a spectacular 110 yr old, planted on red pomace vineyard, located in Contrada Monte Pomiciaro, near Linguaglossa.
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 importers of the most amazing wines one will ever come across and taste.
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.
