2019 Cantine Barbera Inzolia Tivitti - Menfi, Sicily, Italy (750ml)
|Availability:||In stock (14)|
At her family’s winery on the outskirts of Menfi, a Sicilian seaside village bisected by the Belice River, Marilena Barbera, a third generation winemaker, produces beautiful, sustainably farmed wines from indigenous varietals. Her Inzolia (aka Ansonica), is a crisp, clean, refreshing white that’s fermented with indigenous yeast and bottled with minimal sufites. Pale in color with a tinge of greenish gold, this is an intense, yet light-bodied white that’s herbaceous with a whiff of almond blossom, lemon and stone fruit flavors, salinity and minerality. Pair with anything from a tomato based Sicilian seafood stew to eggplant Caponata.
