Casa Mia

Sicily, sicily Italy

These wines are produced for us at Cantine Settesoli, the same winery where the Mandrarossa wines are made. Situated in southwestern Sicily, near the town of Menfi, the co-operative has 2,000 members who between them farm over 5,000 hectares of vineyard. These members are mixed farmers, with many of them also raising livestock or growing other crops like artichokes (the famous carciofi spinosi di Menfi, which are protected by the Slow Food organisation). The work Cantine Settesoli has done to raise the quality of viticulture has ensured a better income for the co-operative members, which in turn means they invest more in the quality of their fruit.

 

This investment pays dividends not only in the Mandrarossa label but also in these Casa Mia wines. The white is made from Catarratto, a variety that performs well in this area, where the proximity to the sea ensures a longer growing season. It is full yet fresh, with a zesty acidity on the palate. The red, a blend of equal parts of Alicante and Syrah, has good colour, fresh and spicy aromas on the nose and ripe, robust fruit on the palate. Both offer excellent value for money.
