Limited Edition Tancredi 2017 Terre Siciliane IGT Donnafugata in collaboration with Dolce & Gabbana
Tancredi enriches the range of wines born from the collaboration between Dolce & Gabbana and Donnafugata, after Rosa, an original rosé wine with fruity and floral aromas. Love for tradition and craftsmanship, respect for the homeland and attention to detail are the values that unite these two excellences of Made in Italy. The limited edition version of Tancredi Sicilia Rosso wears the Dolce & Gabbana creativity, wearing a new stiling made of baroque lines in gold, red and blue.
The name Tancredi, which evokes one of the protagonists of the Gattopardo, is an inexhaustible source of inspiration also for Dolce & Gabbana. With a passionate and irrefutably Sicilian character, Tancredi was born in 1990 from an innovative blend of Nero d'Avola and Cabernet Sauvignon, of a native vine with an international one. Dolce & Gabbana has curated the image of the Limited Edition, paying homage to the Gattopardo, and in particular to the contrast between tradition and modernity that Tancredi sums up in itself: and if gold, blue and sinuous lines of Baroque inspiration celebrate the glories aristocracy now in decline, red, green and pointed geometric figures refer to the new revolutionary values that are affirming themselves in Sicily after the unification of Italy and which are a prelude to the contemporary history of the island.
An elegant and colorful Silk-screened Case and a Label that shows the numbering of only 14013 bottles for this aristocratic and revolutionary wine.
The blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Nero d'Avola is enriched with Tannat and other grapes. With an intense ruby red color, Tancredi 2016 Limited Edition combines notes of red fruit, mulberry and blueberry, with balsamic notes and delicate hints of licorice and sweet tobacco. On the palate it unfolds all its enveloping personality with perfectly integrated tannins and long persistence.
It goes perfectly with red meat and game dishes; equally satisfying is the combination with tuna or fatty fish. It can be uncorked at the moment if served in large glasses with a wide mouth and good height. Excellent at 18 ° C.

In this period of the summer, good temperature ranges between day and night have given healthy grapes with an excellent aromatic and phenolic maturation. The harvest of the grapes destined for Tancredi began with Nero d’Avola during the last decade of August followed by Tannat and Cabernet Sauvignon in the first decade of September

Dialogue with creativity: the name Tancredi recalls one of the protagonists of the Gattopardo, an inexhaustible source of inspiration also for Dolce&Gabbana; in the novel and in the film of the same name, Tancredi is the favorite nephew of the Prince of Salina, precisely because of his charm and ability to adapt to changes. With a passionate and irrefutably Sicilian character, Tancredi was born in 1990 from an innovative blend for that era of a native grape variety with an international one. Dolce&Gabbana has created the coordinated image of the Limited Edition of this "revolutionary" wine, paying homage precisely to the Gattopardo, and in particular to the contrast between tradition and modernity that Tancredi summarizes in itself: and if gold, blue and lines sinuous of Baroque inspiration celebrate the splendor of the aristocracy now in decline, red, green and pointed geometric figures refer to the new revolutionary values that are emerging in Sicily after the unification of Italy and which prelude to the contem orary history of the island
