Vino di Anna Palment0 Rosso, Mount Etna, natural red wine, juicy, fresh and vibrant. Anna Martens and Eric Narioo have a small domain on the North face of Mount Etna, an incredible yet challenging place for making wine. Palmento refers to a 250 year old traditional Etnean building, and the wine is made from a blend of Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio and Alicante (Grenache), as well as some white varieties. The grapes had a four day foot maceration before being foot trodden and matured in stainless steel, old oak casks and Georgian Amphorae. The wine is bottled without any filtration or fining, and virtually no sulphur. The wine is a pale red colour, almost more a dark rosé, cloudy and has vibrant, floral aromas. It has hints of cherry and wild strawberry and is deliciously juicy with soft tannins. A fantastic summer red, and great for those lighter meat dishes, like duck, or meaty fish.
