Description

The Rallo family has made wine in historic Marsala since 1851, and their ancient cellars tunnel beneath the city. They were one of the first families to begin making high quality table wine when sales of traditional sweet Marsala started to decline. The Donnafugata label was launched in 1983 championing some of the more obscure regional Italian grape varieties. Today, they have two estates in Sicily: a modern winery and 260 hectares at Contessa Entellina in the hills east of Marsala; and 68 hectares on the island of Pantelleria. Donnafugata means fleeing woman - a reference to Queen Maria Carolina who escaped the court of Naples in the early 19th century with her husband Ferdinand IV of Bourbon when Napoleons troops arrived. The couple took refuge in Sicily at Santa Margherita Belice palace, also the favourite residence of celebrated writer Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa and depicted on the Mille e Una Notte label. The name of this wine derives from Scheherazade, the legendary Persian queen, main protagonist and storyteller of A Thousand and One Nights.
It is ruby red in colour with violet glints, as could be expected from a young and easy ready-to-drink wine. To the nose it is redolent of red fruit, cherries, wild cherries and plums. Its taste is of whole fruit with a very pleasantly spiced finale.
