DescriptionFounded in 1959, MandraRossa is the creation of Cantine Settesoli, one of the world's largest wine producers. Boasting a premium range of estate-bottled wines, MandraRossa is part of Sicily's largest wine producer and co-operative formed by 2,000 members. Located in the historic town of Menfi, in the southwest corner of this idyllic Mediterranean island, MandraRossa was guided into modern times by the "father" of contemporary Sicilian wine, Diego Planeta. Diego led the company for 38 years from 1973 to 2011. MandraRossa's extensive investment in advanced winemaking technology combined with the expertise of a distinguished team of five full-time winemakers has resulted in an outstanding line of wines that capture the flavors, essence, and mystique of Sicily.
