Donnafugata – Rosa by Dolce & Gabbana

R580.00

The shimmery, pale-pink, Sicilian wine brings back good memories of warm Sicilian nights: “jasmine, enriched with delicate hints of wild strawberry, peach and bergamot“

Dolce & Gabbana’s Mediterranean style is an imaginary world. But it’s not a bad place to visit when reality is so very, very real.

Collection: Dolce&Gabbana and Donnafugata, extraordinary ambassadors of Sicilian culture. When you desire creativity and craftsmanship.

Denomination: Sicilia DOC Rosato.

Grapes: Rosa is the fruit of an original blend of two red grape varieties, among the most representative of Sicilian viticulture. Nerello Mascalese and Nocera. Nerello Mascalese which is grown on volcanic soils at high altitude, expresses minerality and a refined floral component. It lends itself very well to the production of rosé wines which are characterized by their pale pink colour due to the low level of anthocyanins present in the skin.

Nocera is an ancient almost forgotten variety with a prestigious past. After years of experimentation that proved its excellent potential, Donnafugata planted it in its hillside vineyards. Nocera was chosen because it reaches an ideal sugar maturation with a high level of acidity; the result is a fragrant and persistent wine, with a captivating fruity bouquet.
