Donnafugata Tancredi Contessa Entellina DOC 2008

Member Review by shsim:

Named after Prince Tancredi in the leopard, this is a fairly matured wine compared to Sedara. Made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Nero d'Avola, this wet earthy wine has good juicy dark fruitiness with hints of dark chocolate, black currant and a touch of spice. Well balanced with smooth structured tannins, this will definitely pair well with red meat. For more on the tasting, please visit http://dionyshius.blogspot.com/2012/06/donnafugata.html

Donnafugata grew out of the commitment of a family in Sicily that has always believed in the extraordinary enological potential of its land and has 150 years of experience in producing premium wines. Convinced that it is always necessary to be open to change in order to grow and improve, Giacomo Rallo and his wife, Gabriella, launched a new production project in 1983: Donnafugata. Their adventure took wing from the family’s historic cellars in Marsala and the vineyards at Contessa Entellina in the heart of western Sicily and soared as far as the island of Pantelleria. Their children, José and Antonio, joined them and the house accelerated its march along the path of Extreme Quality: a project that focused on attention to detail, which clears the way for entrepreneurial decisions that ever more advanced objectives. As for the future, the young Gabriella and Ferdinando are already being “fully immersed” in the family’s activities Read less
