The 2017 Vino di Anna Rosso is made from a blend of two vineyards of Nerello Mascalese, one old, one new, located in the Contrada Crasa, either side of the winery. 50% of the blend is from “Vigna Jules”, a 90 year old bush vine vineyard purchased in 2010, and farmed bio-dynamically for the past 3 years. 50% is the first crop from a beautiful, amphitheatre of terraces located behind the winery.
These terraces were planted in 2014 & 2015 to a massal selection of Nerello Mascalese, on their own roots. A small percentage of Nerello Cappuccio, Alicante and autochthonous white grapes were also planted at the same time in keeping with the tradition of the area.
Both vineyards were harvested separately, destemmed and fermented by indigenous yeasts in a mastellone. The Vigna Jules wine was full of dark cherries and spice, dense and complex with a firm tannin structure. The other vineyard gave a vibrant, crunchy wine, full of red fruit flavours.
Blending the two together gave a harmony and balance and reunited the two properties grown in the same Contrada.
The resultant wine is fragrant, complex, multi-layered. Ripe red fruits with floral notes of orange and jasmine. This wine has a firm acidity and an austere tannin structure.
Jokingly they say that I am brand ambassador of Vino di Anna. It all boils down to my love for their wines. And how I force people to drink them.

A blend of Nerello Mascalese from 90 years old “Vigna Jules” and from very young terrace. Black pepper and leather on the canvas of black fruits. Pleasant fruity aroma. But tannins are too green, wine feels very powerful and I wonder if it will be better in a year or two. Though as always, I am not the person to answer this question, because I don’t store wine (yet). QPR here is questionable.
