Anna Martens and Eric Narioo,Mount Etna, Sicily 

Anna Martens and Eric Narioo made their first wine together on Mount Etna in 2008. In 2010, the couple purchased their first vineyard of old bush vines of Nerello Mascelese in Contrada Crasà, along with a neighbouring, derelict Etnean palmento and wine cellar.
Today, with a team of locals, they cultivate organically, eight hectares of terraced land, divided into small vineyard plots and olive groves scattered across the north face of the volcano. Grapes are hand harvested in September and October and fermented into a range of natural wines, expressive of their “terroir”.
The estate also produces an extra virgin olive oil and rears the rare Sicilian black bee.

Vibrant purple/red in colour, this wine has attractive aromas of cherries, strawberries, and wild fennel. It is dry, medium bodied with juicy, ripe tannins, red fruit flavours and underlying spice.

Grapes: 90% Nerello Mascalese, 5% Nerello Cappuccio/ Alicante (grenache) and about 5% white indigenous Etnean grapes (Grecanico, Minnella Bianca and Carricante).
