Description

Donnafugata Bell'Assai

"Donnafugata Bell’Assai is a girl with personality who offers to the sweet Sicilian breeze the fruits of the vineyards and the scents of the countryside. She represents the spirit of those enterprising families with the love for beauty which have always been animating the territory of Vittoria. An artistic label with which Donnafugata wants to celebrate the love for the beautiful." STEFANO VITALE, THE ARTIST
Fragrant red with a heart of Frappato. A glass of this gorgeous wine will turn any occasion into a pleasant one. Ruby red colour with violet reflections. The intense bouquet is a sweet breeze of rose and violet florals, with ripe raspberry and strawberry fruits. Fresh and fragrant with a perfect harmony between aromas and taste thanks to its soft tannins.
