This is a Winery-direct offer. Place your order before September 25th and receive your case of wine in 10 weeks. To reserve your case of wine you only need to pay a $50 deposit today, the balance will be invoiced on arrival.

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.

The 100% Perricone Microcosmo has a ruby color, often lighter than many other Sicilian reds. To the nose, complex aromas of red ripe fruit merge into sweet bay-leaf and oriental spices: cinnamon, ginger, incense and star anise, then dried fruit, baked black olives, and salted capers. It is dry and very persistent to the palate.

Microcosmo goes well with street food, especially with fried dumplings and tempura vegetables, as well as with bbq, cured meats and medium-aged cheeses.

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."
