Mandrarossa Ciaca Bianca Fiano Sicilia DOC

2019

In a Nutshell

Enhanced aromatics yet fresh fruit from this Fiano.

Tasting Notes

This wine is a bright straw yellow colour and opens with floral notes of acacia and hawthorn, followed by more fruity aromas of pear and pineapple. The palate has fresh acidity with flavours of grapefruit on the finish.

Production Notes

The grapes were crushed and destemmed, then immediately cooled to 5-8°C, and kept at these temperatures for 4-6 hours. They were softly pressed and the juice was clarified for 36 hours at a low temperature. Fermentation took place over the course of 15-20 days in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks at 16-18°C. The wine was kept in stainless-steel tanks for three months before bottling. The wine was finally released after three months of bottle ageing.

Producer - Mandrarossa

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.
