"Sul Vulcano" Etna Rosato DOC 2021 - Donnafugata

A refined and intriguing rosé is born on the Vulcano. Produced from pure Nerello Mascalese grapes, this rosé has a soft pink colour and delicate floral scents that recall fragrant and sweet flowers such as wisteria, the protagonist of warm spring days, accompanied by pleasant notes of plum and pink grapefruit. In the mouth it stands out for its freshness and refined minerality. At the table it proves to be a perfect wine for a thousand occasions. It is very pleasant served chilled with raw fish and shellfish, but also vegetarian dishes and fresh cheeses. Lovers of Asian cuisine, however, will find in this excellent Sicilian rosé an ideal companion for lunches and dinners enjoyed with chopsticks.

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!
