B-21 Top Recommendation
Giacomo Rallo and his wife, Gabriella – the "Fleeing Woman" and her flowing locks their logo – launched Donnafugata in 1983; today, they are the leading family of Sicilian wine. Accolades are numerous, Antonio Galloni reporting, "There are few better estates in Italy than this one owned by Giacomo and Gabriella Rallo... [thanks in part to] the marvelous work done on the island of Pantelleria, where the Rallo family has invested huge sums of money..." Recent tastings of multiple vintages assert their dominance, especially with Zibibbo, a varietal they produce without competition. These will become new favorites, as they are for me. Each a signature wine, as unique as the history of this fascinating estate.
