Additional Information on Mandrarossa Fiano

Winery: Mandrarossa

Varietal: Fiano

Fiano varietal grapes have been cultivated in the Campania region of Italy for thousands of years, where they thrive under the warm Mediterranean sunshine and reach full ripeness on the superb terroir the region holds. Historians believe that Fiano grapes were a favorite of the ancient Romans, who adored the fact that these pale skinned fruits contained such deep, complex and fascinating flavors, often including dark honey, hazelnut and various spices – something unusual for white wine grapes, and something which made them famous and prized across the ancient Roman empire. Today, the grapes are cultivated in the New World as well as the Old, and are still prized for their unique character and strong, large flavors balanced nicely by a delicate floral aroma.

Region: Sicily

The island of Sicily is one of those wine regions which seems to be designed for the production of quality wines. Not only does it have extremely fertile soils, helped by volcanic activity of such peaks as Etna, but the climate is absolutely ideal for the ripening of beautiful grape varietals, with almost year-round sunshine and cooling sea breezes. Sicily has been using such factors for growing grapevines for thousands of years, and is a truly ancient wine region steeped in tradition. Wineries on the island make a wide variety of wines, which are much loved for their ability to express plenty of exciting fruit flavors and sunny, tempting aromas, but Sicily is most well known for the dessert and fortified wines based around the port town of Marsala.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
