Vino di Anna "Vendredi 13" Rosso 2021
- In stock, ready to ship
This is a medium to light bodied red with aromas of heirloom tomato, black plum, candied orange peel, and a fresh herb garden. The palate is an enigmatic mix of cherry cola, amaro, blood orange, black pepper and volcanic minerals abound.
The Vendredi 13 2021 has so much energy and lift while maintaining complexity, balance and intrigue. Pair with fresh tomato bruschetta, red sauce pasta, burgers, and taco salad. - Jeremy Hernandez
90% Nerello Mascalese, 5% Nerello Cappuccio/ Alicante (grenache) and about 5% white indigenous Etnean grapes (Grecanico, Minnella Bianca and Carricante). All of the grapes were organically grown in terraced vineyards high on the north face of Mt Etna. The fruit was hand harvested and fermented in a variety of vessels by indigenous yeasts; Etnean palmento, open wooden fermenter, mastellone (food grade plastic tubs) and stainless steel. Time on skins varied from a few days to 8-10 days. A large percentage of whole bunches were used. All the wines underwent malolactic fermentation.
Each individual component was not true to style but when blended together produced a balanced, energetic wine, full of fruit with the trademark minerality of grapes grown at high altitude on volcanic soils. Blending took place in Spring 2022 and the wine was bottled without fining and filtration in July and September 2022.
