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.

Bio-dynamically farmed grapes, from the two vineyards at the heart of the “Vino di Anna” wine estate, in Contrada Crasa (CR) are fermented together to create this cuvee.
Vigna Jules, the first vineyard purchased by Anna and Eric in 2010 is a 0,45 ha plot of 90 year old bush vines. Principally planted to Nerello Mascalese, it has deep red/brown silty soils. The grapes from this vineyard give the depth and complexity to this wine.
Vigna Gaspard, is an amphitheatre of terraces planted next to the winery in 2014/2015. A massal selection of vines was made from a reputable old vineyard and the cuttings were planted as own roots in the tradition quincunx, high density format.

Fragrant, complex, multi-layered. Crunchy red fruit; cranberries, wild strawberries and blueberries with floral notes are evident on the nose and palate. The firm acidity and austere tannin structure give way to an underlying spice and minerality, derived from the volcanic soils.

Grapes: Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, Alicante
