Cantine Barbera di Marilena Barbera / Sizilien

The DOC Menfi is a small, still young growing area with its own characteristics. The subsoil is mostly clayey, loamy and calcareous. The soils allow the vines to take their roots deep and soak up enough moisture in the very dry climate. Marilena describes the situation as follows: if you want to understand my wines, you have to see the Mediterranean Sea: beautiful sand dunes, where little black beetles draw endless doodles, where turtles lay their eggs, where gray herons and all kinds of birds rest during their endless walks come. Vines that live so close to the sea that they can transform the brine of the sea into lively salinity. Vineyards with mild winters and warm, dry summers and large temperature differences between day and night. Ripe berries, tasty and sweet, which smell of sunshine and a gentle Mediterranean wind.

fruity & uncomplicated
Nero d'Avola so typical and yet so different. Presents black-red fruit, on reminiscent of dark ripe cherry, some aromas of late ripening strawberry, black
Currants with a tart touch reminiscent of slightly ashy grilled flavors. A bit of everything and not at all with the typical severity. Marilema calls himself
him feminine and was already thinking of calling him Nera d'Avola.

complex & powerful
Microcosmo is a wine with a slender and dynamic body and a complex and multi-faceted personality. Its color, which is often duller than that of many Sicilian reds, shines in a beautiful ruby red that reveals a violet hint as it ages in the bottle. The nose offers exotic and very spicy aromas reminiscent of an oriental bazaar: cinnamon, ginger, frankincense, star anise and then dried fruit, baked black olives, salted capers. In mouth it is tannic, dry, persistent, enriched by a lively acidity, especially in the cooler years.
