Donnafugata – Lighea Zibibbo

R335.00

“From the disheveled tresses the colour of the sun, seawater flowed over the green, wide-open eyes.” Thus Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa describes Lighea, the bewitching siren and principal figure in his novel. She has inspired the creation of a complex and innovative wine and an equally original label.

PROVENANCE

The vineyards are in Pantelleria, Sicily, Southern Italy.

TASTE PROFI LE

The wine is rich in golden-green reflections. Aromas of beautiful white roses and acacia, followed by mineral and salty notes. Peach and zagara emerge finishing with thorn tree, candied citrus rind and a touch of honey. On the palate, a great correspondence between taste and olfactory. A fresh, sapid and enveloping structure. Recommended with all types of fish, baked pasta in white sauce or fried fish.
