This wine is ruby red in colour with intense purple hues. On the nose this wine has aromas of plums, dried fruit and almonds. The palate is full bodied and intense, with a good structure and soft tannins. The finish is long.

Bonera is a 'Contrada' located in the heart of Menfi, totally dedicated to the cultivation of vineyards with very high summer temperatures and strong diurnal temperature variations. This keeps the wine fresh and aromatic.

The vineyards for this wine are located on the hills facing south and south-west, at 90-150 metres above sea level, on silty and sandy soils. Vines are Guyot trained, with a density of 4,000-4,500 plants per hectare.

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.
