The Mandrarossa Rupenera Merlot appears in the glass in an intense ruby red with violet reflections and reveals its extremely expressive bouquet, which is dominated by plum and rosemary, as well as subtle nettle, quince jam and broom.
On the palate, this red wine from Sicily is warm and sustainable with light liquorice notes, mulberry and wild asparagus in the aftertaste.
Vinification for the Mandrarossa Rupenera Merlot
The vineyards of the Cantine Settesoli are located in Menfi, on the Sicilian south coast. Thanks to the special conditions of sunlight, temperatures and sea breezes, the region is perfectly suited for viticulture.
The vines of this merlot grow on predominantly calcareous soils.
After an 8-10-day mash fermentation at 22-25°C, the wine matures for 3 months at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks and another 3 months on the bottle.
