Mandrarossa
Website : www.mandrarossa.it

Imagine a wild, unspoilt region of outstanding, unexpected beauty. That region is Menfi, in the south-west of Sicily where the island slopes gently down towards Africa. The environment is unique and pristine, created by the continuous interaction of Sicily’s most characteristic features with elements brought from Africa by the winds and sea. But as you move away from the coast, you begin to see the first distinctive features of the Sicilian landscape. The countryside is wild and uncontaminated, the climate is dry and the strong sunlight is often dazzlingly intense. This unique territory provides ideal conditions for growing vines. Here, the land changes with every step you take, from clay to limestone to sandy or loose-packed, providing ideal terroir for the cultivation of different grape varieties. It is in this superb wine country that Mandrarossa has selected the finest plots in which to plant a range of premium varieties. Mandrarossa’s vineyards endow wines with genuine varietal expression. These exceptionally fine growing areas yield terroir-true wines with robust character, capable of communicating the special nature of the territory that produced them. All are wines of personality and appeal; all are authentic; all come from a unique, unspoilt region of outstanding beauty.
