Mille e una Notte
Mille e una Notte - the standard-bearer of Donnafugata red wines - offers a further proof of elegance and complexity. It is of an intense ruby red color; the nose opens to ripe cherries and mulberries merging with delicate hints of eucalyptus; the taste is round, with a structured and caressing tannin; very persistent.
Aging potential: over 12 years.
THE WINE EXPERIENCE
Food & Wine: with elaborate dishes of red meat, pork, lamb. Also try it with tasty dishes of fish, baked or stewed and medium aged cheeses. If served in large, big-bellied goblets it can be uncorked a few minutes before, otherwise a couple of hours earlier; excellent at 18°C (64°F).
Occasions: protagonist of an elegant dinner and of your most special and important moments.
Art & wine: The palace shown on the label is the one where Queen Maria Carolina took refuge fleeing from Naples and was the favorite house of the writer Tomasi di Lampedusa in Santa Margherita Belice. Gabriella Anca Rallo – Donnafugata's founder with her husband Giacomo - captures the image and embeds into the sky from "Arabian Nights" full of stars and full of promise. The strong and passionate character of this wine has inspired maître chocolatier Ernst Knam in his creation of the "Mille e una Notte with chili" pralines.
