Perricone Rosé Mandrarossa
The Mandrarossa winery is the clear and authentic passion of the Sicilian wine tradition for its smells, tastes, and conviviality. A young, new, different reality which is very careful to the past and to the history and it expresses it in its wines. The Rosé wine "Il Perricone" is a real good Sicilian wine. It grows close to the sea where there is the wind influence. In this rosé version the wine is fresh and versatile with spring aromas. The production area is the Menfi one on the south-west coast and it is made by the Perricone grapes honored by the IGT Terre di Sicilia certification. The cultivation soil is located at 100-250 meters above the sea level and the soils are clay.

The bottle aging period lasts 3 months.
