Nero D'Avola Mandrarossa

The MandraRossa estate vineyards near the town of Menfi in southwestern Sicily. Soured from
vineyards first planted in 1989 at an altitude between 650 – 820 feet above sea level.
GRAPE VARIETIES
100% Nero d’Avola
PRODUCTION TECHNIQUES
The grapes are manually harvested from September 1 – 5. A brief maceration then takes place for one day followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature between 72˚ – 77˚F with yeasts selected by the winemakers for varietal and regional expression. A system of rack and return and traditional pumping over provides gentle extraction of deep color and fine tannins while retaining fruit characters. Post fermentation maceration is determined by the winemakers in order to
accentuate the development of soft tannins and a greater degree of complexity in the wine.
AGING
30% of the wine is then aged in barrique for six months. The wine is then bottled in April and aged in
bottle for three months.
