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.
Fermented and aged in Georgian qvevri this is a shapely Nerello Mascalese - pale cherry red with delicate aromas of dried roses and bitter fruits, elegant and linear in the mouth with nice tension from the natural acidity.
