The Project

Since 2014 an international team of agronomists and soil experts, together with Mandrarossa enologists, have carried out a scientific study on limestone soils and this has defined them a micro region with a high quality potential. The mapping of these soils has revealed wonderful vineyards where it is possible to grow local grapes generating wines such as “Bertolino Soprano” and “Terre del Sommacco”, the new wines of Mandrarossa Contrada.

The Territory

The territory of Menfi, located on the south-west coast of Sicily, is rich in biodiversity: numerous exposures, slopes, altitudes, sea breezes and sunbeams make it extremely suitable for quality viticulture. Here, Mandrarossa vineyards stretch across limestone soils, considered among the best ones in the world, generating wines that are strongly region distinctive.

The Labels

The Concept

Two labels telling two authentic stories through vibrant illustrations in bright colours, stories that were rediscovered on our land, enchanting and emotive as a result of their intensity, much like the wine itself, bringing to mind values handed down from one generation to another. The values of the agricultural tradition that embody the soul and the identity of Mandrarossa.
