Today, Donnafugata has four estates in Sicily: a modern winery and 283 hectares at Contessa Entellina in the hills east of Marsala; 36 hectares in Vittoria to the south eastern point of the island; 68 hectares on the island of Pantelleria; and 18 hectares on the slopes of Etna. Donnafugata means 'fleeing woman' and is a reference to Queen Maria Carolina, who escaped the court of Naples in the early 19th century with her husband, Ferdinand IV of Bourbon, when Napoleon's troops arrived. The couple took refuge in Sicily at the Santa Margherita Belice palace, also the favourite residence of celebrated writer Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa and depicted on the 'Mille e una Notte' label. TASTING: Pale ruby red in the glass, this wine offers an elegant bouquet of wild berry notes, floral scents and delicate nuances of cinnamon and nutmeg. These characteristics continue through to the palate, supported by freshness and harmonious tannins. The finish is long and balanced. Perfect with savoury pasta dishes, roasted and stewed meats.
