    "Floramundi" Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG 2021
  • Floramundi is a refined Cerasuolo di Vittoria, proposed by Donnafugata, which comes from the typical blend of Nero d'Avola and Frappato grapes. The vineyards, in this case, are located in the south-eastern part of the island, in the municipality of Vittoria. Intense ruby red colour with brilliant violet reflections, Floramundi reveals from the first moment intense fruity aromas, among which the notes of black cherry and berries such as blueberry stand out. On the nose, delicate balsamic nuances are reminiscent of laurel and duet amiably with spicy notes of black pepper. In the mouth, freshness and softness make it juicy and very pleasant to drink. The tannins are fine and well integrated. And it perfectly expresses the harmonious balance that Cerasuolo di Vittoria can achieve. At the table it goes well with savoury first courses and grilled meat. But it also accompanies important baked fish.

    There are companies that every wine lover thinks he knows everything about. Simply because they have always represented the world of Italian wine. Among these, there is no doubt that a special place is occupied by Donnafugata. A winery that for many is synonymous with Sicily and quality wine. A historic brand owned by the Rallo family, Donnafugata produces wines in different areas of Sicily. From east to west, from Trapani to Mount Etna, there is no wine-producing area in Sicily where Donnafugata does not have a vineyard. What few people know, however, is that the name Donnafugata is due to Gabriella Rallo, the wife of the founder and mother of the two enterprising managers of the company today. Gabriella Anca Rallo, a courageous woman with a flair for innovation, was a pioneer of quality viticulture in Sicily. She is the real "donnafugata" (woman on the run) who abandoned her job as a teacher to take care of the Contessa Entellina vineyards full-time. One of the first women in Sicily to produce wine, in a sector typically dominated by men. A true pioneer of quality wine-growing by women. All that remains, therefore, is to say thank you to Gabriella. For being so brave and for inspiring all this. Cheers!
