From the Grower
"Son of a generous land, Coste al Vento has a textural quality of ripe fruit that melts into saline fragrances. The fermentation in clay amphoras enhances the wine’s intense personality. To the nose, complex aromas of candied citron and stone fruit merge into herbal scents of oregano, mint and sage, on a rich layer of nettle and fine green tea. A long-lasting aftertaste enriches a vibrant fresh palate."

Additional Information

Grapes are handpicked in mid-September. The wine ferments spontaneously with the skins for 6 days in clay amphoras, and then refines on fine lees for 4 months with weekly batonnages. Aging potential is about 3-5 years.
My name is Marilena Barbera, and I am proprietor and winemaker at my boutique winery based in Menfi, Sicily. I believe in organic viticulture and agro-homeopathic protection of my vines, and I strive to make wine in a natural way, respecting the main elements that make terroir here so special: the sun, the ocean and the sea breeze. I use wild yeast for all fermentations - both spontaneous and from pied-de-cuve - and avoid any additives and winery practices the may alter the influence of terroir, and the personality of each grape variety. My wines do not contain GMO, nor animal derived elements, and are suitable for vegans. I do not use concentration, micro-oxygenation or other invasive procedures: my wines are not fined, stabilization is performed by only using cold temperature, filtration is very gentle (never below 5 micron) or totally avoided, and sulfites are always at the minimum possible level. All processes are monitored in order to implement quality and traceability, and to guarantee environmental respect.
