Dolce & Gabbana and Donnafugata, extraordinary ambassadors of Sicilian culture. When you desire creativity and craftsmanship.
ROSA is the rose wine that stands out for its elegant fragrance and minerality. Deriving from the partnership between Dolce & Gabbana and Donnafugata, it is the perfect ambassador of two Made in Italy excellences, united by their unconditional love for Sicily, passion for work and attention to detail.
Bright pale pink in colour, the Donnafugata Dolce & Gabbana Rosa has an elegant bouquet of jasmine and rose petals, with delicate fruity notes of currant and bergamot. It has a very pleasant fragrance and minerality and stands out for its finesse and persistence.
Upon arrival in the cellars, the grape clusters were transferred to a vibrating table for manual sorting; only the perfectly intact grapes were destemmed and delicately crushed; the cold maceration of the grapes in the must lasted 6-12 hours permitting to obtain the best extraction from the skins of all the aromatic precursors as well as the colour that distinguishes this rose. Once fermentation was completed, the Nerello Mascalese and Nocera were finally blended, followed by two months of ageing in vats and at least 3 months of ageing in the bottle before release.
Dolce&Gabbana, fascinated by this unmistakable colour, strongly desired the production of a rose, and the name ROSA was chosen to emphasize its unique personality. And just as Donnafugata has created a new blend of two Sicilian grape varieties, so Dolce & Gabbana's creativity has taken up the challenge of telling the story of this prestigious wine, overseeing its coordinated image: the immediately recognizable graphics of the materials draw inspiration from the iconic Sicilian cart, which represents the island’s craftsmanship, culture, and tradition the world over.
