Intense ruby in colour, Tancredi combines notes of ripe plums and blueberries with delicate spicy hints of liquorice and sweet tobacco. On the palate, it is full-bodied and characterful, with perfectly integrated tannins and a long, elegant finish.

Dolce & Gabbana and Donnafugata launched their collaboration in 2017 with the aim of creating a series of special wines, combining Donnafugata’s expertise with Dolce & Gabbana’s distinctive style. ‘Tancredi’ was first made in 1990 from an innovative blend of the native variety Nero d’Avola with the international Cabernet Sauvignon and is now part of this range, with special packaging and an artistic label that evokes the contrast between tradition and modernity of the wine.

The Rallo family has made wine in Marsala since 1851 and their ancient cellars tunnel beneath the city. They were one of the first families to begin making high-quality table wine when sales of traditional Marsala started to decline, launching the Donnafugata label in 1983 and championing the potential of the region’s native varieties.
