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.


Mediterranean scrub, honeydew and citrus aromas lift out of the glass on this savory white. On the refreshing palate, bright acidity underscores wild herbs, grapefruit and green melon alongside tangy saline notes. A hint of white almond lingers on the close.

91 points, Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast (Nov 2020)
