BackgroundMandrarossa wines were born out of a mission for excellence when a team of industry experts joined forces to create high quality wines of both indigenous and international varietals from Sicily to introduce to the world. This team of experts identified top estates that yield the best quality and worked closely with select growers to deliver the truest and highest valued expression of the selected varietals offered by Mandrarossa wines. Ideal microclimatic conditions of intense sunlight, coastal sea breezes and rich chalky soils combine to produce these rich, aromatic wines. The finest Pinot Grigios grow on poor sedimentary soils surrounded by small palm trees known as 'jummare', and produce wines that are fresh and attractive.
VinificationThe grapes are manually harvested in the beginning of August. After de-stemming and immediate pressing, the must is fermented in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 15 - 18 °C, then it matures in stainless steel tanks at 10 °C for 3 - 5 months
