Vino di Anna 'Bianco G' Sicilia 2020
- In stock, ready to ship
This is a seriously delicious white wine from Mt Etna. It has all the minerality, acid, fruit, and texture you could hope for from a volcanic wine. On the nose I detected a bit of caramel, a slight brininess, and a bit of overripe white peaches.
This wine is made from organically grown, predominantly Grecanico (70%), sourced from several small vineyards, high on the north face of Mt Etna hand harvested. The average age of the vines is 80 years old. The altitudes of the vineyards are 800-1100 meters above sea level.
Grapes are macerated for one week on skins. A field blend (Carricante, Minnella Bianca, Insolia) were whole bunch pressed together. The wine is spontaneously fermented and undergoes malolactic fermentation then left on fine lees for 12 months prior to bottling, without fining or filtering
