The Rallo family has made wine in Marsala since 1851 and their ancient cellars tunnel beneath the city. They were one of the first families to begin making high-quality table wine when sales of traditional Marsala started to decline, launching the Donnafugata label in 1983 and championing the potential of the region’s native varieties.

Today, Donnafugata has four estates in Sicily: a modern winery and 283 hectares at Contessa Entellina in the hills east of Marsala, 36 hectares in Vittoria towards the south-eastern point of the island, 68 hectares on the island of Pantelleria, and 18 hectares on the slopes of Etna.

Donnafugata’s Frappato was an instant hit when they launched it as a varietal wine in 2016. ‘Bell’Assai’ sees 8-9 days of maceration on the skins to maximise the extraction of the variety’s notable aromatic character. It ages for 4 months in tank and 6 months in bottle. The resulting wine has intense notes of strawberry, red cherry, rose petal and even a little freesia. Soft and fragrant with a fresh finish and delicate, plush tannins. Drink with grilled vegetables, tuna sashimi, salami, or a fish soup such as guazzetto
