Mandrarossa

Frappato Costadune

Mandrarossa is the clear and genuine expression of Sicily's new face in wine growing. Frappato comes from “fruttato” (fruity), one of the main features of this sicilian variety. This frappato grows on sandy soils which give the wine a vibrant colour, intriguing scents of small red berries, persistence and pleasantness.
