QUICK FACTS

In 2016, every vineyard gave them literally 30% more grapes than in previous years, so they were fermenting in every vessel they could find.

THIS WINE’S STORY

This new wine from “Vino di Anna” is a blend of several micro-vinifications made during the 2016 harvest. Organically and bio-dynamically grown grapes were hand harvested from numerous old bush vine vineyards located on the north face of Mt Etna.
