2019 Vino di Anna 'Qvevri R' Etna Rosso

In 2015, Anna and Eric purchased a small, stunning property in Contrada Rampante, just beneath the Quota Mille road on the Northern face of Mt Etna. Half the property was 80-100 year old bush vines of Nerello Mascalese, the rest, century old olive trees. After farming the vineyard biodynamically for 4 years, the grapes that were hand harvested in 2019 were particularly distinct, and a decision was made to release the wine created from this vineyard, as an individual cuvée for the first time.
100% Nerello Mascalese. Old bush vines ranging from 80-100 years old. 850m altitude. The grapes were destemmed by hand into a buried 1500L Georgian Qvevri and was left to ferment by itself for six weeks. Once the amphora was emptied by hand, the grapes were pressed into large aged oak for 9 more months. 

Vibrant crimson with a deep purple hue, this wine has attractive red and black fruit aromas; cherries, wild strawberries, plums. The palate is complex; fine acidity, austere, ethereal tannins and an incredibly persistent depth of flavour.
