The perfect Mediterranean climate and terroir of Sicily are ideally suited for making wine. Of course, the best winemaking requires more than natural gifts. Enter Settesoli, one of Europeâ??s largest and most respected wineries. Founded by Cantine Settesoli in 1959, MandraRossa boasts a premium range of estate-bottled wine.

The making of these wines began by mapping every parcel of vineyard for aspect, gradient and altitude, so that the ideal terroir for each varietal could be selected for planting. Thus, from the outset, every chosen parcel could be traced and monitored, from harvest to bottling. The wines resulting from these rigorous efforts were proudly introduced under the MandraRossa name.

The intense Sicilian sun, offset by cooling sea breezes, allows for reliable and extended ripening of the grapes. MandraRossa wines are hand-picked, and every harvested parcel is crushed and fermented separately to retain the grapes characteristics. Wines from individual parcels are carefully blended for nuanced complexity, yielding delicate scents and harmonious, fresh flavors.
