From the Grower
"Lu Còri means “the heart”, and describes my love for the feminine character of the Nero d’Avola grown in Menfi. Its bouquet delivers marine aromas, scents of mulberries and raspberries, pickle notes and a touch of savory herbs and light spices. It is fragrant and full on the palate, with velvety soft tannins."

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.
