Menfi Lu Cori Nero D'avola 2020
The best kind of wine is the one that transports you to a whole other world. Marilena Barbera is doing exactly that from her property that sits on the southwest coast of Sicily, sunbathing against the Mediterranean Sea. Her focus is solely on native varieties that thrive on her 30-hectare vineyard, and in this case, we are looking at Nero d’Avola.
With a spicy and lively saline character, this wine truly represents the intriguing Sicilian terroir where it is produced. The wine has a bright ruby red color with intense shades of violet; its bouquet shows scents of mulberries and raspberries with a touch of light spices. On the palate it is fragrant and full, with soft velvety tannins that shape a vibrant, Mediterranean personality.
