Anna Martens and Eric Narioo started making wine together on Mount Etna, Sicily in 2008. They created “Vino di Anna” in 2010. They now own several hectares of old vine Nerello Mascalese, which they farm organically. They purchased an old winery and Palmento in 2010 which they have restored. They have extended the winery to bury a series of Georgian qvevri for vinification and maturation.
Pale straw in colour, this wine has pretty, floral notes of white blossom coupled with lemons. It is fresh and delicate on the palate with a textural mouthfeel that is in harmony with the sapidity and salinity of the wine.
