From the Grower
"FuoriZona is a mouthwatering Frappato with a light ruby color, soft tannins, a distinct acidity and a graceful body. It smells of cherries, mint, violet and red roses, and has a mouth of pink pepper, blood orange and pomegranate. While creating this wine, I remembered the words of Liliana Segre, an Auschwitz survivor, about the little girl who drew a butterfly flying over the barbed wires during her deportation. This label is dedicated to all those who will never forget."

Additional Information

Grapes are harvested mid-September. The wine ferments spontaneously in a Slavonian oak vat for 5 days, where it also completes spontaneous malolactic. It refines for 6 months in neutral Slavonian oak barrels. Drink young or keep for 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.
