Vino di Anna Palmento 2015


A blend of mostly Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, Alicante (Grenache) and indigenous white grapes (Minella, Catarratto, Insolia).

The grapes are hand harvested and transported to the Palmento (traditional wine press). About 50% of the grapes were de-stemmed by the hand, the rest remained as whole bunches. The grapes were macerated for four days, trodden by foot several times. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel and transferred to used oak casks and Georgian 'qvevris'/amphora. This wine is aged on the lees for at least 6 months and then bottled unfiltered.
