SPECIFICATIONS

TASTING NOTES

Azienda Donnafugata was established in Sicily by the Rallo family, whose passion has raised the profile of Sicilian wine all over the world. The ‘Sur Sur’ element of this wine’s name means ‘cricket’. It is derived from classical Arabic, which was once also spoken in Sicily. As well as being a cute little creature thought by some to bring good luck, the Grillo is an ancient native Sicilian grape. The grapes grown in the western part of Sicily are harvested between the end of August and the start of September, fermented in stainless steel, and aged for two months in the tank followed by three months in the bottle. This Grillo is a bright straw yellow with generous notes of peach and melon as well as hints of wild flowers and mint. It is soft and velvety on the palate, and its final balsamic note offers up a pleasant freshness. Perfect for every day, it goes well with dishes based on fish and shellfish or with vegetarian cuisine. However, it really comes into its own if paired with gourmet panini. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Donnafugata

Donnafugata's wines interpret Sicily and passionately describe its sensory universe. Donnafugata was established in Sicily from the initiative of a family with over 160 years of experience in quality wine. The company was founded in 1983 from the Rallo family’s historic wine cellars in Marsala and in the Contessa Entellina vineyards, in the heart of western Sicily. In 1989, Donnafugata arrived on the island of Pantelleria where it began producing sweet natural wines. The name Donnafugata, literally "woman on the run", refers to the story of Queen Maria Carolina, wife of Ferdinand IV of Bourbon, who fled Naples due to the arrival of Napoleon's troops in the early 1800s and took refuge in that part of Sicily where the company vineyards are located today. The face of a woman on each bottle has thus become the symbol of Donnafugata, inspired by the life of Gabriella Rallo, who gave up her job to devote herself to the Contessa Entelline vineyards, a typically male sector, thus becoming a pioneer of Italian female viticulture. With its Sicilian red wines, Donnafugata represents the excellence of Made in Italy, creating a perfect dialogue between art, wine and sustainability. The high quality of these wines is closely linked to a sustainable approach, aimed at safeguarding biodiversity, which is essential for creating authentic wines that are attentive to organic and sustainable viticulture. Name and address of producer/distributor: Donnafugata - Via Sebastiano Lipari, 18, 91025 Marsala (TP). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
