    Details

    Characteristic

    Elegant and round white wine, whose richness is balanced with a tight acidity and minerality. To the nose unfolds scents of Mediterranean scrub and aromatic herbs, hints of yellow pulp fruit and a touch of vanilla. An ideal partner for great occasions like a wedding receptions or romantic dinner. Its personality and elegance perfectly pair with smoked fish, soufflés, white meats and even semi-aged cheeses.

    The vineyard

    Donnafugata winery was founded in 1983 by Giacomo Rallo and his wife Gabriella Anca, continuing a wine story five generations long. Donnafugata is one of the most famous names of the renewal process of Sicilian wine.

    The name Donnafugata, literally ‘woman in flight’ refers to the history of Queen Maria Carolina, wife of Ferdinand IV of Bourbon, who fled Naples in the early 1800s on the arrival of Napoleon’s troops, seeking refuge in the part of Sicily where the winery's vineyards now stand. This event inspired the Donnafugata logo, the effigy of a  woman’s head with windblown hair found on every bottle.

    It was Sicilian author Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa in his novel Il Gattopardo who gave thename Donnafugata to the country estates of the Prince of Salina. The estate was where the queen stayed, and it now holds the winery’s vineyards.
