"Lighea" Zibibbo Sicilia DOC 2021 - Donnafugata

"From her messy, sun-coloured hair, the sea water dripped onto her wide-open green eyes'. This is how Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa describes Lighea, the bewitching mermaid who is the central character in one of his stories. This fascinating character inspired Donnafugata to create this wine, which is both complex and innovative. Lighea is an intriguing aromatic Mediterranean wine, son of a dry vinification of Zibibbo grapes, that is Moscato di Alessandria. Brilliant straw yellow in colour with greenish reflections, the nose offers a rich and fragrant bouquet, where the classic notes of orange blossom are combined with hints of citrus and sweet exotic fruit. In the mouth the fruity and floral notes return, accompanied by a marked freshness. Good persistence and a pleasant mineral finish. Try it with raw fish or fried food.

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!
