FRESH, DRY WHITES

Fresh, dry whites - FIANO, Mandrarossa. Sicily

2018 FIANO, Ciaca Bianca, Mandrarossa. Sicily

Bin: 91
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Grape Variety: 100% Fiano, fermented very cool and kept in steel tanks (on lees) for just 3 months before bottling, to retain maximum freshness.
Producer: From the UK agent, Liberty Wines:
"First produced in 1999, the Mandrarossa wines come from a selection of the best sites from Cantine Settesoli’s 6,000 hectares of vineyard, situated in southwestern Sicily and planted with 32 different grape varieties. This range was conceived after the diverse soils of the vineyards were mapped, enabling the winemakers to focus on what were then ranked their best sites. Under the leadership of co-operative president Giuseppe Bursi, consultant winemaker Alberto Antonini has sought to improve viticulture, which in turn has resulted in better wines. Working with soil specialist Pedro Parra and head winemaker Mimmo De Gregorio, Alberto has selected 500 hectares of vineyard for the production of the Mandrarossa wines. These vineyards are situated close to the sea, where intense sunlight, moderating sea breezes, mild temperatures, multiple elevations and a myriad of different soil types combine to give the sort of grapes that Mimmo and Alberto are looking for."
Old Bridge Rating: This is a great example of a big producer creating a quality product by using top quality expertise from outside the area. A combination of typically clean and bright "Italian white wine" drinkability, with textural richness and interest from Fiano - one of the best southern Italian grape varieties.
