La Fuga

The Chardonnay from the night harvest

La Fuga

La Fuga 2015 has a brilliant straw yellow color. The nose is characterized by a fresh bouquet with notes of fragrant tropical fruit (pineapple) and citrus fruit (citron) combined with nuances of Mediterranean scrub (thyme). In the mouth it amazes with its intense minerality combined with a pleasant vein of acidity.

Artistic label

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. Gabriella is a woman with the wind in her hair who is never at rest. Gabriella invented La Fuga, a label that not only suggests movement but also sunshine and the land.
