Cantina Barbera is located in Menfi, on the west coast of Sicily. The vineyards, that are farmed following organic and biodynamic practices, are about one mile from the Mediterranean Sea: an uncontaminated deep blue sea. The low cliffs and sandy dunes create a beautiful environment for the grapes to thrive, and are also protected by the Belice River Natural Reservation Fund.

Kalìo is a Sicilian word used to describe the buzzy noise of popcorn, the same noise that friends make when catching up at a party. The wine is made with laughs, talks, and funny jokes. This 100% Perricone is a lively ruby colour with violet shades. The nose is a playful blend of red berries and geranium flowers. The smooth tannins enrich a medium-bodied palate, where spicy notes of star anise and ginger stand out against a persistent saline background.

Kalìo pairs well with red meats, pasta dishes and cheeses, and it is a very interesting companion to spicy fish soups and grilled tuna fish.
