La Fuga 2020, with a bright straw yellow color, offers a fragrant bouquet with notes of tropical fruit (pineapple) and citrus peel (cedar) together with delicate hints of white flowers. In the mouth it is savory and fresh thanks to a pleasant acid finish.
At Contessa Entellina, where Donnafugata comes from
In the settings of the Gattopardo
In the heart of western Sicily - among the hills of Contessa Entellina, between 200 and 500 m a.s.l. - lie the vineyards Donnafugata comes from. The climate is Mediterranean, with rain concentrated during the autumn and winter months, dry and breezy summers, with a great range of air temperature variations between day and night. The soils are predominantly medium-clayey, but vary according to the peculiarities of the individual districts.
Sustainability at the service of quality
Sustainable management of agricultural activities
For over 30 years we have been pursuing environmental sustainability with a system of good practices: we do not use herbicides and chemical fertilizers and we minimize the use of pesticides. At the Contessa Entellina estate, we installed two photovoltaic systems in 2002 and 2008, in order to produce clean energy and reduce our emissions.
The study of native varieties
Biodiversity, an expression of an authentic Sicily
Since 2009, we have been committed to the protection and enhancement of Sicilian wine biodiversity thanks to an experimental vineyard with 19 native varieties including some heritage varieties, which have almost completely disappeared.
Gabriella Anca Rallo (founder of Donnafugata, with her husband Giacomo) thought of “fleeing” and beginning a new life, passing from the arts to the land.
