Lighea by Donnafugata, a heroic and sustainable challenge

With the 2023 Lighea, Donnafugata consolidates its commitment to sustainability using the Cento per Cento Sicilia bottle and Nomacorc Ocean closure. An aromatic wine with few equals, Lighea is made from Zibibbo grapes and is symbolic of a form of heroic viticulture that looks to the future.

Donnafugata continues to focus on the challenge of environmental sustainability by introducing innovations to its Lighea white, which remains true to its origins but is now packaged in an innovative new way.

Beginning with the 2023 vintage, Lighea is now bottled in the Cento per Cento Sicilia (‘100% Sicily’) Burgundy bottle, so-called because it is produced exclusively on the island of Sicily from recycled glass according to a virtuous circular economy model promoted by Fondazione SOStain and implemented by O-I Glass.

Weighing just 410 grams, the Cento per Cento Sicilia bottle also has the advantage of being lighter and therefore contributing to reducing CO2 emissions and environmental impact over time. Lighea also uses the Nomacorc Ocean closure, produced by recycling plastic collected in coastal areas to protect the marine ecosystem.

These are the new features of a white wine that is already special, made from Zibibbo grapes and a product of the heroic viticulture of Pantelleria: the sun and the wind are the silent guardians of this volcanic island; here, vines are grown using the traditional Pantelleria head-trained bush practice, very low down and inside a hollow. A creative and sustainable agricultural technique that UNESCO has added to its list of intangible cultural heritage.

The result is an aromatic wine with a deeply Mediterranean character; a white that stands out for its unmistakable hints of orange blossom, its citrusy and floral notes, its remarkable freshness, and its pleasant mineral finish.

Finally, a restyling of the Lighea 2023 packaging tells the personality of this wine through the eyes of a bewitching mermaid. In the background of the new label, the shades of the sunset have made way for those of the sunrise on Pantelleria, faithful to the elegant original design drawn by the peerless Stefano Vitale.
