Showing the single result


One winery, two grape varieties. The micro-farm has only three hectares and cultivates Frappato and Nero d'Avola. Manenti is and lives the appellation Cerasuolo di Vittoria. Since the foundation of this only DOCG in Sicily, that is, the highest designation of origin for Italian wines, Manenti has existed here in the region around Ragusa. The values of the winery can be summarized in two words: Honesty and sincerity. That's what you want to express with every single bottle.

There are only three wines. One from each of the two grape varieties and with the Cerasuolo a cuvée. Due to the sandy soils of the Sicilian southeast and the high competition in the vineyard, the vines are forced to root deeply. The results of their efforts are aroma density and natural acidity with low yields. One looks for overripe here in vain. Amazing is the Finesse and lightness in the wines, considering the hot, dry climate.

Elegance and wholesomeness are paramount.

More about Manenti

Honesty stands for the craft. Day after day, the winemakers do their part with scissors, muscles and pure manual labor. The vines are densely planted in the Alberello upbringing, vines resembling small trees.

The Sincerity finds its expression in attachment to home and traditions.

Mechanical processing is not possible at Manenti. The natural viticulture without artificial additives based on the autochthonous grape varieties sets a clear profile.

Your Frappato is fragrant, light red in color and bursting with energy. The freshness is beguiling and the wine is literally in the juice. The Nero d'Avola comes along spicier, lives from the pressure and its dark fruit. The Cerasuolio di Vittoria is the quintessence, the yin and yangthese two.

As a new member of the Consortium I Vigneri Manenti now also benefits from the knowledge of the island's star oenologist, Salvo Foti. I Vigneri is committed to preserving and developing the traditions and values of Etna and its wines. In the meantime, the consortium has also expanded to the island groups around Sicily, like the Lipari islands, Pantelleria and the area around Vittoria.
