Regular price$39.95per bottle

Herbal & Saline
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.
Son of a generous land, Coste al Vento delights the palate with a tasty and ripe fruit that melts into saline fragrances, and profits from a prolonged skin contact that enhances the wine’s unique personality. Its color is bright gold. Complex aromas of yellow ripe fruit merge into herbal scents of oregano, mint and sage, on a rich layer of nettle and fine green tea. A long lasting aftertaste enriches a vibrant fresh palate.
A particularly tasty combination for Coste al Vento is with big roasted fishes, grilled prawns or stuffed calamari, but also with a super-classic Spaghetti Carbonara. It is surprisingly good with glazed pork belly, or with semi-matured cheeses such as Tuma Persa and Caciocavallo Ragusano.
