Donnafugata White Blend Sicilia IGT Lighea 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The sapling grapes grown on terraces in Pantelleria are harvested at the end of August, in cooler districts, and with younger vines. After soft pressing of the grapes, the must is fermented at controlled temperatures; the resulting wine ages in the bottle for a minimum 2 months before release to the market.

Donnafugata:

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

Tasting Notes:

The dry version of Zibibbo, this aromatic white has a true Mediterranean soul. Bright straw yellow with greenish hues, its brightness becomes grape, pear, melon to the nose; the flower merges with fruit, almond and rosemary. Beautifully caressing, it enchants with the typical features of Zibibbo, pulpy and persistent. Food & Wine: Recommended with all types of fish, baked pasta in white sauce, fried fish. Two dishes: Sarde a beccafico (sardines stuffed and roasted or fried). Pesce gatto con ravioli e asparagi alla maggiorana (catfish with ravioli and asparagus flavored with marjoram). Serve: In tulip-shaped goblets of medium size and height; uncork at time of serving; excellent at 9-11°C (48-52° F). Curiosity: "From the disheveled tresses the color of the sun, seawater flowed over the green, wide-open eyes." Thus Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa describes Lighea, the bewitching siren and principal figure in his novel. She has inspired the creation of a complex and innovative wine and an equally original label. "It wasn't easy to print this label," Gabriella Rallo recalled, "and preserve the thousand shadings of the original colors of the drawing."
