Bearing the family name of Angelica, played by the fascinating Claudia Cardinale in the film "Il Gattopardo" directed by Luchino Visconti, this wine impresses the taster with its solidity and gentility. The label refers to the cellars at Contessa Entellina and the land in which this native vine?s roots are deeply planted.
Nero d'Avola, 100%. The ruby-red color is rounded out by lively garnet reflections. The impact on the nose is intense with sensations of tobacco, spices and mineral notes. In the mouth, the wine is balanced with fruity flavors, mainly blackberries and cherries. Persistent finish.
Wines with incisive identities and intense or at times impenetrable color, full by nature yet richly elegant and soft. Such are the Reds of Donnafugata, the expressions of a territory and, at the same time, of a variety, Nero d'Avola, that, when skillfully exploited, succeeds in generating surprise and conviction, demonstrating that it is a real protagonist among native Italian vines.
