Cantine Barbera Microcosmo Perricone Menfi 2017
Regular price$44.95per bottle

Spiced & Salty
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.
