Cantina Barbera is located in Menfi, on the west coast of Sicily. The vineyards are about one mile from the Mediterranean Sea: an uncontaminated deep blue sea, facing South, where low cliffs and sandy dunes create a beautiful environment protected by the Belice River Natural Reservation Fund.

Ammàno means 'by hand': in a world dominated by industrial processes, human hands and creativity are the values we need to come back to. A craft orange wine, made with no machines or electrical devices. With a golden color and a cloudy texture, Ammàno has a bouquet of orange blossoms and yellow broom, apricot notes and the savory Mediterranean shrub: thyme, marjoram, oregano and a hint of incense. It is dry and full on the palate, with a distinct saline finish.

Pair Ammàno with tuna-fish bottarga, seashells, anchovies and marinated fish, sea urchins and
everything that tastes of clean blue oceans, even better if non-cooked.

About the Winery

Cantine Barbera

Cantina Barbera is located in the Menfi Coast, on the west coast of Sicily. The vineyards are about one mile from the Mediterranean Sea: an uncontaminated deep blue sea, facing South, where low cliffs and sandy dunes create a beautiful environment protected by the Belice River Natural Reservation Fund.

A third generation farmer, Marilena Barbera farms the Inzolia that her grandfather planted in the 20's, just as she attends to the native varietals that are the new frontier of her own generation: Perricone, Nerello, Alicante, Nero d'Avola and Grillo. Marilena makes her wines praticticing organic farming and natural winemaking, while paying utmost respect to Menfi's terroir.

"At the winery, I chose to work only with spontaneous fermentations and to adopt non invasive winemaking practices, in order to respect the unique personality of Sicilian native grape varieties and the beautiful land to which they belong."
