Mandrarossa is a winery based in Menfi in the south-west of Sicily, where the island slopes gently down towards Africa. It is a wild, unspoilt region of outstanding, unexpected beauty, created by the continuous interaction of Sicily's most characteristic natural features with elements brought from Africa by the winds and sea.
The countryside is wild and uncontaminated, the climate dry and the strong sunlight is often dazzlingly intense; ideal conditions for growing vines. Here, the land changes with every step you take, from clay to limestone to sandy or loose-packed, providing varying terroirs for the cultivation of different grape varieties. It is in this superb wine country that Mandrarossa has selected the finest plots in which to plant a range of premium varieties and these vineyards endow wines with genuine varietal expression. These exceptionally fine growing areas yield terroir-true wines with robust character, capable of communicating the special nature of the territory that produced them. All are wines of personality and appeal; all are authentic; all come from a unique, pristine region of outstanding beauty.
Attractively golden in the glass with some hints of green around the edges. The palate is inviting, exotic and generous, displaying aromatic tropical fruits and hints of minerals. Medium bodied and dry with balancing acidity keeping the tropical fruits clean and refreshing, finishes dry, textured and crisp.
