DescriptionFounded in 1999, 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 is the high quality project of Cantine Settesoli and comes from the selection of the ideal terroir for each varietal.
