Moscato di Pantelleria Kabir DOC 2020
sandy of lava origin with sub-acid or neutral reaction; deep and fertile, well endowed in minerals.
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.
From the Arabic "The Great" Kabir, is the name Donnafugata has given to its Moscato di Pantelleria, for the breadth and nobility of its aromas.
Bright straw yellow color, it is characterized by a complex bouquet of tropical fruit (passion fruit), floral hints of orange blossom and delicate salty nuances. In the mouth echoes the fruity and sweet notes, perfectly balanced by the fresh mineral vein. Good persistence with a spicy finish of pink pepper and nutmeg.
