Tancredi 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 the success of 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 Made in Italy excellences.
The Tancredi Sicilia Rosso version 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 Leopard, is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for Dolce & Gabbana as well. With a passionate and irrefutably Sicilian character, Tancredi was born in 1990 from an innovative blend of Nero d'Avola and Cabernet Sauvignon for that era, of a native vine with an international one. Dolce & Gabbana took care of the image of the elegant case, paying homage to the Leopard, 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 of the now declining aristocracy, the red, the green and the 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.
The Tancredi Dolce and Gabbana was born with the 2016 vintage in a Limited Edition. The blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Nero d'Avola is enriched with Tannat and other grapes. With an intense ruby red color, Tancredi 2016 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.
He 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.

The vintage and the harvest: in Contessa Entellina after two years with little rain, in 2018 there was 743 mm of rain, a figure that is above the average (667 mm) of this area. Much of the precipitation was distributed in spring; only in some plots there was rain even in summer. The integrated management of agronomic practices, from pruning to thinning up to the choice of different harvesting moments, inspired by sustainable viticulture, has allowed us to have healthy and well-ripened grapes. The harvest of the grapes destined for Tancredi began in the first ten days of September with the collection of Nero d'Avola and Tannat, and ended with that of Cabernet Sauvignon around mid-September.

Dialogue with creativity: the name Tancredi evokes one of the protagonists of the Leopard, an inexhaustible source of inspiration also for Dolce & Gabbana; in the novel and in the film of the same name, Tancredi is the favorite grandson of the prince of Salina, precisely because of his charm and his ability to adapt to changes. With a passionate and irrefutably Sicilian character, Tancredi was born in 1990 from a blend for that innovative era of a native vine with an international one.
Dolce & Gabbana has taken care of the image of this "revolutionary" wine, paying homage to the Leopard, 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 splendor of the now declining aristocracy, the red, the green and the 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.
