Description

History

The story of this company begins when Marilena Barbera, after years spent outside her native Sicily, rediscovers the vineyard and her father’s dream. Marilena produces its wines following the rules of organic farming and natural winemaking, without the use of herbicides, chemical fertilizers, with the utmost respect for the terroir and biodiversity of Menfi; the wines ferment only spontaneously thanks to indigenous yeasts. In this context the elements of this Sicilian land can really express themselves: when we uncork a Marilena Barbera wine in the glass we find the bright sun of Sicily, the influence of African maritime winds and the echo of ancient civilizations that once inhabited the area.

Grapes used

Nero d’Avola 100%

Production method

The harvest is manual and in boxes, in order to select and preserve the best grapes, and takes place around mid-September. The grapes undergo a short preferential maceration and then ferment spontaneously with the skins for about 6 days in steel tanks, to maintain the freshness of the aromas. The refinement takes place once again in steel, for another 3 months.

Alcohol content

12.5%

Tasting notes

Brilliant ruby red color, with a certain transparency, with intense violet reflections. On the nose notes of ripe red fruits including blackberries and raspberries, with hints of salty, thyme and bay leaves in the background. In the mouth it is soft and velvety, smoothed by a warm alcohol and light tannins. Very pleasant and fruity finish.

Possible combinations

“Lu Còri” is perfect as a wine to drink by the glass, even if you want it a little cooler as a summer aperitif, for lovers of fragrant red wines. In combination we see it very well with first courses with tomato sauce or with fish with tomato sauce such as cod for example.
