    • "Sedàra" Rosso Sicilia DOC 2017 <br>MAGNUM in Gift Box

      “Sedàra” Rosso Sicilia DOC 2017 · MAGNUM in Gift Box

      Wonderful cuvée based on Nero d'Avola. Ruby red with vivid garnet reflections. In the intense fragrance allusions of tobacco, spices and mineral notes. The balanced taste, characterized by red fruits, impresses on the palate with blackberry and sour cherry tones and ends in a final of good length. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dark, bright ruby red. In the nose of ripe cherries, plums, underlined by fine spicy and peppery tones, appears compact and inviting. Taut and juicy on the palate, opens on spicy elements, gripping." Falstaff

      "A ripe and juicy wine with sour-cherry and berry character. Hints of almonds. Medium body. Flavorful finish." James Suckling

      "Deep red. Ripe aromas of red cherry and Oriental spices. Then fresh and juicy, but with a luscious quality to the super-ripe red and black cherry flavors that turn more austere in the middle. Finishes long and suave. This smells and tastes a lot like the 2018 Sherazade, only made from riper grapes." Vinous

    • "Fragore" Rosso Contrada Montelaguardia Etna DOC 2016

      “Fragore” Rosso Contrada Montelaguardia Etna DOC 2016

      Fragore, the new red wine by Donnafugata from the Montelaguardia area in Randazzo, is part of the collection of wine icons Mille e una Notte and Ben Ryè. With only 15,000 bottles, Donnafugata has produced a precious limited edition. The name of the new wine, Fragore, means thunder in Italian: the volcanic thunder of Etna, Europe's highest and most active volcano. The first vintage is from the 2016 harvest, with grapes from the Nerello Mascalese autochthonous grape variety from selected vineyards.

      Bright, bright ruby red. Spicy floral bouquet of currants, tobacco, nutmeg and violet, with a delicate flint note. In the taste beautifully complex and elegant, the finely composed tannins guide every sip into a persistent final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Brilliant, medium-density ruby garnet. Opened with resinous notes, cedar wood, then raspberries and fresh plums, some thyme. Juicy and round at the base, then opens with a lot of present berry fruit, fine-meshed tannin, salty and long." Falstaff

      "First vintage, released October 2018. Single vineyard in Montalguardia. Vines aged 70 years, trained both albarello and VSP. The soils here are the result of a different eruption and are therefore of different composition than other parts of Etna, giving fuller-bodied wines, according to Donnafugata's Antonio Rallo. Slightly darker than the Sul Volcano 2016. But still light to mid ruby. Sweeter and riper red-cherry character. Firmer tannins. Really firm and compact and chewy though the texture is very fine, beautifully dry. Needs food. Super-fresh." Jancis Robinson

      "Here is a new and exciting wine from the folks at Donnafugata. The 2016 Etna Rosso Contrada Montelaguardia Fragore is a compact and mid-weight expression that opens to a pretty garnet color with dark ruby hues. The bouquet is redolent of wild berry and cassis, but you also get hints of wild rose, smoke, tar and volcanic smoke. As a first vintage of this wine from Etna, the folks at Donnafugata have hit the nail on the head. This is a great wine for a blackened tuna steak on the grill." Robert Parker

      "Authentic, very bright pale shade of Etna reds with young pink edges. Sweet red fruit and glacé cherries on the nose, plus a distinctive tanginess. An incisive, concentrated, tightly packed, muscular palate and a long finish with sour berries, Parma Violets and pepper. Needs time." Decanter

      "Luminous deep red. Knockout nose offers tangy red fruits, minerals and porcini complicated by Oriental spices and broom. Conveys an impression of superb concentration but also of nonpareil refinement, boasting the uncanny combination of tactile presence and deep luscious pristine red fruit, aromatic herb and stony flavors. A wine of great length and potential with a penetrating steely quality and with lots of fruit lurking in the background. This is the first vintage of Donnafugata’s new top of the line Etna Rosso and it’s a beauty. It undoubtedly helps that the grapes come from the Montelaguardia contrada, one of the lesser known but terroir-wise, one of the of the very best Etna contradas of all." Vinous

      "Orange peel, pure red plums, sour cherries, tangerines and a ton of lemons. Medium-to full-bodied with great density on the center palate, but really refreshing acidity to carry this through to a long finish. Very impressive and a new wine from this producer." James Suckling

    About the winemakersDonnafugataSicily
    Donnafugata

    The name Donnafugata - the "Woman on the run" from the famous novel "The Leopard" of the writer Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa - Giacomo and Gabriella Rallo did not choose Rallo until the 1980s. But the wineries have belonged to the family since the 19th century. The Sicilian model enterprise has long been run by the children Antonio and José with the enthusiastic involvement of culture, charity, sustainability and environmental awareness. Their roles in the oldest winery of the Mediterranean island are clearly distributed: While Antonio is in charge of production, his sister is responsible for controlling and marketing. The next generation with Gabriella and Fernando is also ready to go. In addition to all tradition, innovation is the focus of the Donnafugata wine company. A special feature: the grapes are harvested at night. This saves energy and prevents unwanted fermentation during transport.

    The brilliant entry of the Rallo family into a market still standing still in the eighties and dominated only by one single brand gave Sicily's winegrowing a groundbreaking impulse. Giacomo Rallo's decision to invest not only in the Contessa Entellina headquarters in Marsala but also in Pantelleria was almost revolutionary. But the much-praised natural sweet wines crowned the adventure on the small island with its salty and calcareous soils with great success.

    The impressive, well-structured range, produced in three extremely modern winemaking facilities, of the winery located in western Sicily ranges from fine fruity white wines from indigenous and international varieties, to fruity red wines, fine sweet wines, a Spumante Brut and the red, almost entirely from the local Nero d'Avola prepared Mille e Una Notte. The Zibibbo grapes, which come from a recultivated vineyard more than one hundred years old with rare vines that are true to their roots on Pantelleria, are the raw material for the world-famous sweet wine Ben Ryè.

    On the path of the heroic viticulture for some years now Donnafugata, under the guidance of Antonio, winemaker of the family and custodian of craftsmanship, has also been present with its own vineyards at Etna. Nerello Mascalese is mainly cultivated here. The first vintages of wines from the volcano captivate with elegance and finesse and mark another milestone in the history of the traditional Sicilian winery. 

    The decision to equip the winery with a photovoltaic system shortly after the turn of the millennium was important as. Donnafugata today covers most of its energy needs with solar power. The artistic labels for the wines often inspired by literary masterpieces are part of a convincing marketing strategy: the story telling. A universal language that recounts wine and Sicily through an extraordinarily identifying fantastic and feminine language. The idea to combine music with noble drops came from José. The trained singer, who could already be heard and seen in New York, likes to combine a song with a delicious wine of the house during her performances. SUPERIORE.DE

    "One year after another, the Sicilian wine landscape produced plants with plenty of structure and alcohol. In 1983 Giacomo Rallo burst into this monotony with drops that were modern, well made and pleasant to drink, heralding a new oenological age on the island. To date, the labels have lost none of their initial elegance and accommodating nature."Gambero Rosso
