Donnafugata was born from the commitment and foresight of a family that, with passion, has been able to innovate the style and perception of Sicilian wine in the world.
Giacomo Rallo, the fourth generation of a family with over 160 years of experience in quality wine, founded Donnafugata in 1983 together with his wife Gabriella, a pioneer of viticulture in Sicily. Today his sons José and Antonio lead the company and a team of people oriented towards excellence.
Donnafugata would not be the winery it is today if Gabriella had given it another name.
The name Donnafugata refers to Tomasi di Lampedusa's novel "The Leopard". A name which means "woman on the run" and refers to the story of a queen who found refuge in that part of Sicily where today are located the winery's vineyards. A story which inspired the company's logo: the image of a woman's head with her hair in the wind which is featured on every bottle.
A face which is also the one of Gabriella Rallo, the "donnafugata" who abandons her job as a teacher in order to take care full time of Contessa Entellina's vineyards. One of the first women in Sicily to produce wine in a sector typically dominated by men: a pioneer of quality feminine viticulture.
Terre Siciliane Rosato DOC "Lumera" by Donnafugata is a luminous and very pleasing rosé, which best exalts the fruity and floral notes of the grapes produced in Donnafugata's younger vineyards.
Bright pink color, it offers a wide and fragrant bouquet with fruity notes of wild strawberries and pomegranate, together with delicate floral hints of violet. In the mouth is crisp and sapid with a good structure and a pleasing persistence of fruity notes.
cold maceration in press for 12-24 hours at 10°C followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature
