This wine is ruby red in colour with intense purple hues. On the nose are aromas of ripe red fruit, dried fruit such as prunes and almonds. The palate is full bodied and well structured, with silky tannins and a persistent finish.
The vineyards for this wine are located on the hills facing south and south-west, at altitudes between 90 and 150 metres above sea level, on silty and sandy soils. The vines are Guyot trained and planted at a density of 4,000-4,500 per hectare.
The Mandrarossa wines come from a selection of the best sites from Cantine Settesoli’s 6,000 hectares of vineyard, situated in southwestern Sicily and planted with 32 different grape varieties. The vineyards are split between the 2,000 members of the co-op, and cover the area around Selinunte, the hauntingly beautiful ruins of a Greek town founded 2,600 years ago. Cantine Settesoli helps to support the restoration of this archaeological site.
