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. 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.
VinificationEach varietal is harvested separately to ensure optimal ripening. Grapes are destemmed, crushed and the resultant must is rapidly chilled to 39°F on its way to the pneumatic presses.
