The palace shown on the label is the one where Queen Maria Carolina took refuge fleeing from Naples and was the favorite house of the writer Tomasi di Lampedusa in Santa Margherita Belice. Gabriella Anca Rallo – founder of Donnafugata, with her husband Giacomo – captures the image and embeds it into the sky from "Arabian Nights", full of stars and full of promise. A tribute to the passionate masterpiece of oriental literature, capable of telling thousand and one stories.
Intense ruby red.
Ample bouquet, with fruity notes (blackberry and black mulberry) and balsamic (liquorice) and spicy scents (nutmeg).
The palate is soft and embracing, surprising with an extraordinary silky tannin. A remarkable long persistence on the finish.
