composed of 30-year-old Negroamaro grapes planted in clay soils. The grapes were biodynamically grown with minimal chemical intervention, and the wine was vinified with no sulfur added. Anne was named after Natalino’s wife, Anne, and according to Jules Dressner, she makes one of the best Eggplant Parmesans you’ll have in your entire life.
- Vines have been in Natalino Del Prete’s family for generations, and he currently works 10 hectares of indigenous Puglian vines.
- He grows Primitivo, Negroamaro, a bit of Malvasia Nera and Aleatico.
- Anne was fermented and aged in large concrete tanks underground, keeping a fresh and fruity quality to this wine.
- Negroamaro is a very dark wine with loads of black fruit characteristics, and dried herb aromas - perfect for Syrah folks who want something different.
