Bertolino Soprano, the Grillo from Mandrarossa’s line “Storie Ritrovate”, is the sentiment and witness of an emotional experience that concretely shows the evolution of Sicily that has chosen to tell its story through good wines and valuable winemakers. We are in Menfi and here, as in many other areas of this territory, vine has been at home since immemorial time. Years after years, sometimes difficult, sometimes sunny and dry, Mandrarossa has punctually brought home wonderful results, revealing unexpected places and choices. An innovation that travels hand in hand with biodiversity and enhances the particular pleasure of the sip. Bartolino Soprano is the true essence of Menfi through a vine like Grillo, it is the awareness of a proposal that constantly dialogues with the place. A pounding glass, of a beauty that shows itself in a truthful, modern taste, guardian of the vintage and of the entire wine system. Tales of daily toil shown through the graphic art of Nancy Rossit and a sip of the scents of sunflower fields, white pulp fruit, infusion of mallow, anise and cedar. The palate is an evocation of the tension and acidity of white calcareous soils, of a marine flavor closely linked to a precious geography for the vine and man.

We paired it with a plate of macaroni with sardines and atturrato bread, strictly served at a temperature of 10 degrees.


Company profile

Mandarossa was born in 1999, after more than 20 years of important studies on terroir. Mandrarossa wines are the result of continuous research and experimentation towards innovation. The cultivated vines represent the best combination of soil and typology. The grapes of Mandrarossa wines are autochthonous and authentically Sicilian (Grillo, Grecanico, Nero d'Avola), but also of international and innovative inspiration (Chardonnay, Syrah, Viognier, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Chenin Blanc).
For this reason, they represent a Sicily out of stereotypes, a Sicily that you do not expect.
The territory where the 500 hectares of Mandrarossa vineyards are located is in the southwestern part of the island. An area of unspoiled nature and biodiversity, characterized by soft hills full of vineyards sloping towards the sea and by expanses of olive groves, wheat fields and pastures that mark the landscape.
It is here, in the heart of Menfishire, one of the most important wine districts of Sicily, that, arranged on several levels, the new Mandrarossa Winery rises: outpost perfectly integrated with the surrounding landscape, at about 90 m a.s.l.
700 square meters, the new barricaia, two tasting rooms, a wine shop and a terrace overlooking the sea that is unique beauty.
