An exception that proves the rule
Contessa Entellina

Opera Unica

Yellow in colour with golden and coppery reflections, it has a very peculiar and surprising organoleptic profile.

To the nose, it presents an extraordinarily broad bouquet whose taste is that of ripe yellow pulp fruit, candied citrus fruits, saffron, ginger, chestnut honey, and beeswax; in the mouth, Opera Unica surprises and conquers as a dry wine, with a marked acidity and a savoury finish.

A wine rich in extracts, of great substance, depth and persistence, with many components that ultimately make up a mosaic of harmony and elegance.

Opera Unica


Contessa Entellina Doc Chardonnay



Production Area

Contessa Entellina estate and neighboring territories, South Western Sicily


For 9 months in tanks and over 4 years in bottles

At the table

A wine that is enhanced when paired with food. Ideal with sushi, Asian dishes with a redominantly umami flavour, mushroom-based dishes, and white meats.
It is also worthwhile to try it paired with bottarga and semi-mature cheeses. To best appreciate its organoleptic richness, it should not be served too cold, but at a temperature of 12-14 °C.

An exception that proves the rule

Opera Unica is the result of handcrafted production always open to innovation. The botrytised grapes harvested in the extraordinary 2018 vintage in a small vineyard on the Contessa Entellina estate were an exception that Donnafugata interpreted in an unprecedented way, giving life to a first-ever Chardonnay with a unique and surprising style. A new top-quality wine production of only 6,574 bottles, ready to charm enthusiasts and collectors alike.    

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.  

Opera Unica

A new label by the artist Stefano Vitale tells about Opera Unica’s surprising and elegant personality. The key figure is a woman mysteriously wrapped in a cloak rich in a mosaic of colours, shapes and decorations that symbolise the many organoleptic nuances of this wine. Opera Unica is in the glass, which she holds like a precious possession. The name recalls a small family reserve marketed 30 years ago. Now this name returns to celebrate another truly unique and inimitable wine, due to the climatic conditions from which it was born and the characteristics that distinguish it.
