We’ve got a taste for Dolce and Gabbana’s Sicilian rosé wine
A transportive Sicilian treat, wherever you find yourself this summer
Italy’s vibrant and community-focused food culture has long inspired Dolce & Gabbana. Think jewellery formed from spirals of pasta, clothing festooned with prints of juicy vegetables, and bags resembling trays of Italian pastries. In recent years, the label has also launched limited edition tins of pasta in collaboration with Pastificio di Martino, and citrus fruit-stuffed Fiasconaro Panettone. Juicers, toasters and kettles are also all part of its kitchen-approved collaboration with Smeg.
Now, with the launch of Rosa, a new rosé wine, produced by Donnafugata, the label is inviting us to sip on something Sicilian, wherever our summer location. The pleasingly hued, thirst quenching tipple, is defined by an elegant bouquet of jasmine, enriched with delicate hints of wild strawberry, peach and bergamot. Its fruity and floral elements are born from a a blend of Nerello Mascalese and Nocera grapes, which are grown on the northern slopes of Mount Etna and on the hills of Contessa Entellina, near Palermo.
Rosa’s packaging also brings a Sicilian punch. The bottle’s geometrically patterned and colourful label is inspired by the ornate detailing of traditional carts native to the Italian island. It’ll prove equally transportive when you take your first sun-drenched sip. §
