Vigna di Gabri

The cru wanted by Gabriella Rallo

Vigna di Gabri

Vigna di Gabri 2015 has a brilliant straw yellow color with light green reflections. The nose opens with fruity notes, classic white peach combined with a citrus note of grapefruit, intertwined with floral notes of elderflower and wild flowers. The palate perfectly reflects the nose, enlivened by a fresh savory streak. A fine and elegant white, with an intriguing personality and surprising longevity.

Artistic label

“Vigna di Gabri” is not a fantasy name, because the wine bears the name of Gabriella (founder of Donnafugata, with her husband Giacomo), who wanted to create it and strongly believed in the full flavored fragrance of Ansonica. The graphics, renewed on the occasion of the wine’s 25th Anniversary, is precious and elegant, and fully reflects the character of the wine.
