"Sherazade" Nero D'Avola Sicilia DOC 2020 - Donnafugata

Sherazade is the red wine you don't expect, also ideal for aperitifs. Sicilia Doc Nero d'Avola, in the glass it has a beautiful bright ruby red colour with violet reflections. The bouquet is pleasantly fruity. Hints of plum and cherry emerge, accompanied by hints of delicate spice, particularly black pepper, and balsamic notes. In the mouth, the lovely fruity notes perceived previously return, but above all a soft red wine is revealed, well supported by a pleasant freshness. The tannins are well integrated, thus completing the picture of a fragrant and pleasant wine. It is also extremely versatile at the table. An ideal companion for tasty fish soups, it can also be served with a simple pizza or spaghetti with tomato sauce. It is undoubtedly also excellent with red meat dishes, such as classic roast beef.

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!
