Vigna di Gabri has a straw yellow colour with light green reflections. Classic white peach aromas combine with floral notes of elderflower and wild flowers. The palate reflects the nose, enlivened by a fresh savoury streak. This is a fine and elegant white, with an intriguing personality and surprising longevity.

The grapes for this wine are sourced from the Vigna di Gabri vineyard, on the Contessa Entellina estate in south-west Sicily. The vineyard stands at an altitude of between 200-300 metres above sea level. Soils are clay loam and rich in nutrients. The vines are trained on a vertical shoot position system and cordon spur pruned. Average planting density is 4,500 - 6,000 vines per hectare and yields are approximately six tonnes per hectare.

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.
