One of stars of the Sicilian wine region, there are many facets to this stellar company steeped in the history and traditions of the island but welcoming modern inputs to grape growing, winemaking, branding, range of products and the business of hospitality. Its roots lay in the artisanal and creative excellence of “Made in Italy” and retains the family business ethics of
sustaining a modern authentic and sustainable producer.

The family of Giacomo (dec. 2016), matriarch Gabriella Anco Rallo and their children – José and Antonio carry out their multilateral business with passion and enthusiasm. One of the most striking areas of the business has been the partnership between Gabriella and Stefano Vitale in design of the stunning labels which celebrate the stories of the runaway Queen from the novel “The Leopard”, which the company name and the label designs allude to. A partnership with Dolce & Gabbana lead to the design of two labels – the “Rosa” and the “Tancredi”.

The estate comprises vineyards from five territories including the new fashionable “Etna” region. The company focus on quality goes hand in hand with sustainability comprising excellence in vineyard practises, reduction of the carbon and water footprints, energy saving/ use of clean energy and biodiversity by enhancement of indigenous varieties and finally, gender equality and superb training of the Donnafugata team.
