Production areaMenfi, Southwest coast of Sicily
BackgroundMandrarossa wines were born out of a mission for excellence when a team of wine making experts joined forces to create high quality wines from both indigenous and international varieties from Sicily to introduce to the world. This team of experts identified top estates that yield the best quality grapes and worked closely with select growers to deliver the truest and highest valued expression of the selected varieties offered by Mandrarossa wines. Ideal microclimatic conditions of intense sunlight, coastal sea breezes and rich chalky soils combine to produce these rich, aromatic wines. Timperosse is one of the best examples of specific areas in and around Menfi that produce unique and distinctive wines characterized by elegance and intense aromas.
VinificationGrapes are harvested at the end of August. Maceration and fermentation lasts 4-6 days at a temperature of 64-71 degrees Fahrenheit. The wine is then aged in stainless steel tanks for 4 months, followed by 4 months of aging in the bottle.
