EPICURE LOVES Rosa, e 9 epicureasia.com The famed Italian fashion house has renewed its collaboration with Sicilian winemakers Donnafugata. The two brands are paying tribute to the conviviality of family dining with a new rosé wine that captures the very essence of Sicily, from colours, scents, and history. The new wine is an original blend of two important autochthonous wines of Sicily: Nerello Mascalese and Nocera. The result? A characteristic pink tinge and an elegant bouquet of jasmine, wild strawberry and bergamot. The Nocera variety in particular, is of special importance to Donnafugata; years of experimentation with the ancient varietal has led to an exceptional fruity flavour profile, courtesy of the verdant hills of Contessa Entellina where it is grown. The packaging of the Rosa wine is also heavily inspired by the iconic mosaic designs of the Sicilian cart. The marriage of tradition, culture and design, if anything, is certainly evocative of what is to be expected from future developments in this collaboration.
