In a Nutshell
Racy Sicilian wine begging for seafood and sunshine!
Straw yellow in colour with vivid greenish hues. The nose is intense and vibrant sicilian citrus fruits such as medlar and grapefruit, and just a hint of savoury basil. Wonderfully typical fruit and herbal notes on the palate. The bright, fresh flavour of grapefruit make this wine refreshing and racy.
Cryomaceration of the grapes at 5 - 8 °C, fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 16 - 18 °C then 3 months in steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 10 °C before bottling.
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.
