Vino di Anna "Jeudi 15" Rosso 2020
- In stock, ready to ship
Upon opening the Jeudi 15 Rosso 2020, it has a slight reductive note on the nose. I detected dried raspberry, fresh cherry, and a bit of white floral aromas. On the palate I tasted bright fresh raspberry, a bit of Campari, an Aperol spritz note, with a slight tingling on the tongue. This wine is fresh and vibrant with lots of racy acidity, fresh tart fruit, with a hint of tannic structure.
Organically farmed Nerello Mascalese from 80-90 year old bush vines. The vineyards are located in the stunning contrada of Monte Laguardia at altitudes of 800 to 840 metres on the northern slopes of Mt Etna. The wine is made from a majority of Nerello Mascalese with small amounts of Nerello Cappuccio and Alicante (Grenache) added. The grapes are hand picked, 70% of the grapes are de-stemmed by hand into 30hl wooden fermenter. The rest of the grapes were added as whole bunches. Spontaneously fermented with indigenous yeasts without temperature control. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation and remained on fine lees, in several large, used oak casks, not fined or filtered.
