The Sicilia Angheli di Donnafugata was born in vineyards located on the Contessa Entellina estate in Casale Bianco, in the heart of south-western Sicily.
It is produced with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, harvested by hand between August and September. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with maceration on the skins at a controlled temperature of 28 ° C for about 12 days. After malolactic fermentation, the wine ages in French oak barriques and tonneaux for 12 months and in bottle for a further 24 months.
It has a very intense ruby red color. The nose opens with elegant balsamic and red fruit notes, enriched with hints of violet and sweet tobacco. On the palate it is well structured, soft and fruity, with velvety tannins.
Perfect to accompany baked and braised red meats, it is ideal in combination with game.
