The historic Cantine Settesoli company promotes a different and interesting Sicily through its own brand, Mandrarossa, which is well-known on both the domestic and international markets.
A wine inspired by the beautiful Sicilian sea that pays respect to a pure Sauvignon grown with care on slopes that absorb the sea’s particular expression and powerful personality.
Its sunny yellow hue is accompanied by an extremely broad and similarly delicate olfactory experience, much like its golden reflections.
The floral component dominates the aromatic part as well as the traces of Mediterranean scrub, while citrus serves as the fruity base and white-fleshed fruits help to temper it, resulting in a very well-balanced tiny hint of tropical.
It is robust and powerful in the tongue, bringing back the scents noticed on the nose with good balance in the persistence and aftertaste, accompanied by a minerality with savory and appropriately acidic characteristics.
Urra di Mare is a hymn to combinations, from Catalan crustaceans to fresh seafood, to pasta with Pachino tomatoes, anchovies, and that pinch of colatura that adds its outstanding originality. Congratulations to Mandrarossa!
Created in 1999 thanks to a study that lasted over 20 years, which led to selecting the best variety/terroir combinations: the ideal habitats that allow each grape variety to fully express its potential. The Mandrarossa wines are the result of constant research and experimentations towards innovation. For this reason, they represent a different Sicily, unlike its stereotypes. From the hills of the south-eastern coast that reach the sea, to Etna’s black sands, Mandrarossa researches the best habitats that allow each cultivar to fully express its potential. The study about the behavior of the varieties and the intense micro-vinification activities were carried out leading to the introduction of new wines into the product line over time, some of which, unique for the Sicilian panorama.
