    "Dea Vulcano" Etna Rosso DOC 2021
  • On the label, as beautiful as all those proposed by the Sicilian company Donnafugata, Etna, the volcano, is represented by a beautiful woman with red hair the colour of lava. A perfect evocative image to represent this Dea Vulcano, a fragrant red wine of great pleasure. It is made from Nerello Mascalese grapes to which a small percentage of Nerello Cappuccio is added. After vinification, the wine is aged for 14 months in cement vats and partially in second and third passage French oak barriques. Light ruby red in colour, Dea Vulcano offers a refined bouquet with notes of red fruit, such as wild strawberries, and floral hints of violets. Delicate tertiary scents are then added, including black pepper and sweet tobacco. The palate is fresh and fragrant. Soft with well-integrated tannins and a balanced, juicy finish. Excellent with hors d'oeuvres of cured meats and semi-mature cheeses.

    Ci sono aziende di cui ogni buon appassionato pensa di sapere tutto. Semplicemente perché rappresentano il mondo del vino italiano da sempre. Tra queste, è fuor di dubbio, un posto particolare è occupato da Donnafugata. Azienda vinicola che per molti è sinonimo di Sicilia e di vino di qualità. Storico marchio di proprietà della famiglia Rallo, Donnafugata produce vini in diversi aree della Sicilia. Da Est a Ovest, da Trapani all’Etna, non c’è zona vocata per la produzione di vino in Sicilia dove Donnafugata non possieda un vigneto. Quello che in pochi sanno, però, è che il nome Donnafugata è dovuto alla figura di Gabriella Rallo, moglie del fondatore e madre dei due intraprendenti attuali responsabili dell’azienda. Gabriella Anca Rallo, donna coraggiosa e propensa all’innovazione, è stata pioniera della viticoltura di qualità in Sicilia. E’ lei la vera “donnafugata” (donna in fuga) che abbandona il suo lavoro di insegnante per occuparsi a tempo pieno dei vigneti di Contessa Entellina. Una delle prime donne in Sicilia a produrre vino, in un settore tipicamente dominato da uomini. Una vera pioniera della viticoltura di qualità al femminile. Non ci resta, dunque, che dire grazie a Gabriella. Per essere stata così coraggiosa e di aver ispirato tutto questo. Salute!
