Mumbai, 17th November 2018: Aspri Spirits, India’s leading distributor of premium wines and spirits, hosted a special evening to bring together wine lovers at the Olive Bar and Kitchen, Bandra in association with All Things Nice – Luxury, Wine And Spirits Consulting & Marketing Agency and Food and Wine India, magazine.
The wines presented were Donnafugata Sedara and Anthilia, which are perfect icons of wines from Sicily and Donnafugata as a brand, also revolutionized the style and the perception of Sicilian wine in the world.
Having amassed 160 years’ worth of experience over 5 generations, Donnafugata wines are a passionate exploration of Sicily’s sensorial universe. The name Donnafugata means ‘woman in flight’ and refers to Queen Maria Carolina of Bourbon, who in the early 1800s, sought refuge in Sicily, where Donnafugata vineyards stand today.
Leading light of the Sicilian fine wine movement, Donnafugata has forged a powerful international reputation, crafting exciting wines, distinguished by their complexity and finesse, representing both the history and innovation of Sicily.
Sicily is Italy’s southernmost region, and the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. For more than 2500 years the island has been a significant center of Mediterranean wine, although the reputation and style of its wines has changed significantly over that time. Once famous for sweet Muscat, and later fortified Marsala, the island’s best-known wines today are its dry table wines made from indigenous grapes like Nero d’Avola & Cattarato. Blessed with consistently bright sunshine and reliably moderate rainfall, Sicily’s classic Mediterranean climate is ideally suited to the production of wine grapes.
ORGANIC. A floral, aromatic Sicilian wonder, overflowing with honey-melon, lavender& citrus notes. The wine shows a precise personality of fruity and floral sensations, notes of yellow peaches and plums and scents of the Mediterranean vegetation.
Round and elegant on the palate, tastiness and softness unite.
ORGANIC. An elegantly magnificent Nero d’Avola from Sicily’s top premium wine producer. One for real wine lovers. An intense aroma of tobacco and spices. Well balanced flavour of red fruit with a remarkably persistent finish.
Elena Bortoletto, a Sicilian sommelieroffered the guests a historic and enthralling experience of Donnafugata’s wines. She took them through the exciting journey of the brand by presenting the brand’s history, the process of making wines, details on their best wines and much more. The drinks were paired with specially curated appetisers by the talented Chef Rishim Sachdeva.
