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. Mandrarossa Syrah is a velvety wine with intriguing spicy notes. Named after some of the dry local soils, recalling the Saharan Desert, from which the sand is blown by the south-eastern wine "Scirocco."
VinificationThe grapes are manually harvested in mid-August. After maceration for 8 - 10 days at 22 - 25 °C, ageing takes place in stainless steel tanks for 3 months at 10 °C.
