"Sursur" Grillo Sicilia DOC 2021 - Donnafugata

SurSur is a fresh and fruity Grillo with a young spirit. The name comes from the classical Arabic language, once spoken in Sicily. On the label, a small work of art like all those proposed by the Sicilian company, we admire a fundamental detail of the woman in flight. It is her foot, naked on the grass, that we want to imagine engaged in the first fatal step towards escape. This image recounts, for those who know the company well, the escapes of the founder Gabriella Anca Rallo, still a child, running barefoot among the flowers and fresh grass, following the song of the crickets. Brilliant straw yellow in colour, this wine offers a fresh bouquet on the nose with distinct notes of white-fleshed fruit, such as peach and the classic cantaloupe melon, combined with hints of wild flowers and mint. On the palate it is smooth, with a return of the fruity notes combined with a pleasant freshness.

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!
