Donnafugata – Sedara

R240.00

Bearing the family name of Angelica, played by the fascinating Claudia Cardinale in the film “Il Gattopardo” directed by Luchino Visconti, this wine impresses the taster with its solidity and gentility. The label refers to the cellars at Contessa Entellina and the land in which this native vine’s roots are deeply planted.

PROVENANCE

From Nero d’Avola vineyards in Sicily, southern Italy.

TASTE PROFI LE

The ruby-red colour is rounded out by lively garnet reflections. The impact on the nose is intense with sensations of tobacco, spices and mineral notes. In the mouth, the wine is balanced with fruity flavours, mainly blackberries and cherries and has a persistent and lingering finish.
