Food Pairings for Mandrarossa Fiano
I had this wine at a tasting and loved it. I'm a die hard chard fan, but this had just enough depth with a exotic finish that I was sold! I'm so glad to find it here, as I can't seem to locate it for sale in my home town of Charleston, SC
A definite bargain wine! The appearance is clear and very inviting. It leaves behind some oiliness when swirled, which makes sense due the fact that it's a fruity wine and has a high alcohol content. This Fiano has a rich, peachy smell. The taste is plump and expressive, it's on the sweeter side, but never approaches too sweet. The flavor lingers for several seconds before fading. I didn't pair this wine with food, but I would definitely take it along with me to a sushi restaurant (that has a BYOW policy of course!). Overall this is an excellent, inexpensive wine that most people would appreciate!

Fiano 2010 - Wine Enthusiast/ Nicely balanced and tart, this versatile white wine made from the Fiano grape could pair with fish, appetizers, spicy food or salads. It delivers aromas of pear, peach and Golden Delicious apple.
Founded in 1959, MandraRossa is the creation of Cantine Settesoli, one of the world’s largest wine producers. Boasting a premium range of estate-bottled wines, MandraRossa is part of Sicily’s largest wine producer and co-operative formed by 2,000 members. Located in the historic town of Menfi, in the southwest corner of this idyllic Mediterranean island, MandraRossa was guided into modern times by the “father” of contemporary Sicilian wine, Diego Planeta. Diego led the company for 38 years from 1973 to 2011. MandraRossa’s extensive investment in advanced winemaking technology combined with the expertise of a distinguished team of five full-time winemakers has resulted in an outstanding line of wines that capture the flavors, essence, and mystique of Sicily. Production Area The MandraRossa estate vineyards near the town of Menfi in southwestern Sicily. Sourced from vineyards first planted in 1989 at an altitude between 650 – 820 feet above sea level. Grape Varieties 100% Fiano Vinification The grapes are manually harvested in mid-August. The grapes are de-stemmed and the resultant must is rapidly chilled to 46°F on its way to the press. Some portions of the fruit are given skin contact in order to extract flavor and body. After a very gentle press, the juice is cold settled prior to fermentation with selected yeasts at 59 – 64°F in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Color Brilliant pale yellow Bouquet A lovely nose of ripe tropical fruits and citrus aromas Taste Crisp, exotic and dry with notes of lychee and orange peel with a touch of minerality. A medium-bodied wine with an elegant balance. Alcohol 13.5% Serving Suggestions Enjoy with chicken and turkey entrées, fish and grilled vegetables.

Fiano 2007/ MandraRossa's well-priced Fiano offers Golden Delicious apple, banana and almond skin. The wine has a candy-like quality overall, but it's also genuine and simple with an easy approach.
Fiano 2007 - Wine Spectator/ This shows some honey and pear, with a light herbal character. Medium- to full-bodied.
Fiano 2008 - 85 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Easy going and well priced, this light Fiano is an informal companion to summertime foods. Aromas here include peach, citrus and mineral and the wine is sharp and clean on the close.
