Mandrarossa Timperosse Petit Verdot Terre Siciliane IGT

2018

In a Nutshell

A fantastic example of what Petit Verdot can do when fully ripened!

Tasting Notes

The wine has an intense ruby-red colour with purple hues. On the nose, it has intense and elegant aromas of cherry, black mulberries and fresh plums with aromatic notes of rosemary and sage. On the palate, it is fresh and lively with soft tannins.

Production Notes

The grapes were hand harvested then crushed and softly pressed. After maceration for 8-10 days, the must was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks at 18-22°C. The wine was then aged in oak barriques for six months prior to bottling.

Petit Verdot

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.
