Mandrarossa Timperosse Petit Verdot Terre Siciliane IGT

2017

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 red mulberries and plums with aromatic notes of rosemary and sage. On the palate it is young and lively, with soft tannins.

Production Notes

The grapes were hand harvested at the end of August. Once at the winery, they were crushed and softly pressed. After maceration for four to six days, the must was fermented in temperature controlled stainless-steel tanks at 25-18°C. The wine was kept for three months at 10°C in stainless-steel tanks before bottling four months before release.

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.
