Mandrarossa Costadune Frappato Terre Siciliane IGT

2020

In a Nutshell

A lighter style red, perfumed and elegant with soft tannins and juicy acidity.

Tasting Notes

This wine is intense ruby red in colour with purple hues. On the nose, it has aromas of morello and marasca cherries, notes of small red berries and sweet spices. The palate is mineral and balanced with a long finish.

Production Notes

Grapes were hand harvested at the beginning of September. After destemming and gentle pressing the grapes were fermented in stainless-steel tanks at a temperature of 18-22°C with 8-10 days of skin maceration. Ageing took place in cement and steel tanks for six to eight months. The wine was then bottled for four months before release.

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.
