Sicily's position right at the centre of the Mediterranean and the variety of its land make it an island that has always had a long-standing wine growing tradition. Like guardians of the land the winegrowers here manage their small vineyards like a family heirloom. Intuitively, the Mandrarossa wine comes with a story of passion and love for the land and here, wine growing is a family tradition, handed down from father to son, one generation after the other. 150 metres above sea level and bathed by the sun's rays in an otherwise arid climate, the Mandrarossa Carthago 2014 brings on a distinct and deep flavour, that you'll want to be under the sun, with the breeze of the sea on your face.

GRAPES: Nero D'Avola
We were born in 1958 in Menfi, in the same year in which "Il Gattopardo" by Tomasi di Lampedusa was published, a Sicilian historical novel in which a fief called Settesoli is mentioned. An important estate, so much so as to be given in dowry by Don Calogero Sedara to his daughter Angelica for the wedding with Tancredi, nephew of the Prince of Salina: same fief from which we take the name and the same land that are the background to the book and our daily look. Here relives an ancient history that dates back to the Sicans and passes from the ancient Greeks: our vineyards still surround Selinunte, the largest archaeological park in Europe, and they have supported it with a fundraiser that aims to make this more known and usable this treasure of our territory.More about the Winery
Reviews of Mandrarossa Cartagho 2014
Twinkling cherry colour. The red smells good, like red fruit compote. This Nero D'Avola has a very very long aftertaste.
