Based on Mount Etna in Sicily, Vino di Anna is a small family domain (co-run by the owner of UK importer Les Caves de Pyrene).
Their Palmento wines are a homage to the traditional Palmento buildings of Etna, where grapes were trodden by foot in lava stone vats. The process is now illegal to make commercial wine in, due to very poor hygienic standards.
These Palmento wines are not made in the same way, but pay respect to the quick maceration and field blends used to make such wines (before a quality over quantity approach, much of Etna's wine history was full of field blend wines, mixing both red and white grapes, all thrown in together for bulk wine production)
This is a beautiful, lighter expression of Nerello Mascalese (and various other native grapes, including white grapes)
