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.

Made from 100% Carricante, as all the best Etna Bianco are. Hand-harvested on the volcanic slopes of Mount Etna, where the dark soil absorbs heat during the day and releases it during the night, helping to fully ripen the grapes even at significant altitude. Aged for 10 months in old oak barrels and kept back for 9 months after bottling. Crisp golden apple, citrus and dried herbs with a flinty acidity and a textured, savoury palate. Drink with shellfish, risotto, or seared king oyster mushrooms.
