Cartagho Mandrarossa

Production Area
Sicily, Italy The Cartagho vineyards provide a diversity of styles of Nero d’Avola. The vineyards sit between 650 and 820 feet about sea level.

Grape Varieties
100% Nero d’Avola

Vinification
Ripe Nero d’Avola grapes are destemmed and crushed as soon as they arrive at the winery. They are then transferred to temperature-controlled stainless steel fermenters. Fermentation takes place between 72°-75°F with yeasts especially selected by the winemakers for varietal and regional expression. A system of rack-and-return and traditional pumping-over provides gentle extraction of deep colour and fine tannins whilst retaining fruit characters. Post-fermentation maceration accentuates the development of soft tannins and a greater degree of complexity in the wine. The wines then mature in oak prior to blending.

Bouquet
Intense notes of licorice, plums and well integrated oak
