The palace illustrated on the label is the one where Queen Maria Carolina took refuge on the run from Naples and was the favorite home of the writer Tomasi di Lampedusa in Santa Margherita Belice. Gabriella Anca Rallo - founder of Donnafugata together with her husband Giacomo - captures the image and embeds it in a sky of "A Thousand and One Nights" full of stars and full of promise. A tribute to the passionate masterpiece of oriental literature, capable of telling a thousand and one fairy tales. Intense ruby ​​red. Wide and deep characterized by fruity notes (blackberry and mulberry) that blend with balsamic (licorice) and spicy (nutmeg) hints. Soft and enveloping, and surprising for the great finesse of the tannin. It closes with a considerable gustatory length.
