Porta del Vento Perricone 2011
£16.00 per bottle
Made from a clone of Barbera, this is a juicy vibrant red, with sour cherry and black plum flavours, and a hints of white pepper and earthiness. Would pair well with red meats, meaty pasta dishes and strong cheeses.
Vineyard & Wine Region Information
The Porta del Vento Wine Estate is situated in the hills of the Valdibella district of Palermo, Sicily. It is certified organic, they hoe around the vines by hand and also pick the grapes by hand, and use no chemical weed or pest control or chemical fertilisers. They also do not filter the wine, so that each wine maintains its unique characteristics. This wine ferments spontaneously in oak barrels and has no yeast added. All of these processes help to make this the excitingly different wine that it is.
