Mandrarossa Costadune Zibibbo Secco Terre Siciliane IGT

2020

In a Nutshell

Zibibbo is an ancient, very aromatic Sicilian variety.

Tasting Notes

This wine is pale straw yellow in colour. On the nose, it has aromas of orange blossom, citrus fruit and white peaches. The palate is fresh and balanced with a long finish.

Production Notes

The grapes were hand harvested in the middle of September. After being crushed and destemmed, the must was immediately cooled to 5-8°C and kept at these temperatures for four to six hours. The must was then softly pressed and the juice obtained was clarified at a low temperature for 36 hours. The clear must was fermented in stainless-steel tanks for 30 days at 12°C. The wine was aged for three months on the lees and another three months in the bottle 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.
