A structured red wine with a remarkable personality. Complex and elegant offers on the nose a rich bouquet with balsamic scents, floral notes and spicy nuances.

The 2008 Contessa Entellina Rosso Mille e una Notte stands out immediately in a blind tasting, thanks to the wines instantly recognizable pedigree. Crafted in a seamless manner, this mostly Nero dAvola based wine is inky dark and beautifully concentrated with thick layers of blackberry, barbecue spice and a defining note of eucalyptus oil (that seems stronger in this vintage). This is a soft and penetrating effort with long, polished tannins, impressive richness and persistency. Donnafugata doesnt reveal what other grapes may be present in the blend, but given the strong Bordeaux influences at the winery, there could be grapes associated with that part of France. In the style of the great super Tuscan wines, Mille e una Notte is a true “super Sicilian. Drink 2015-2025.

Food pairing
Structured and gentle perfectly matches with rich dishes of red meats and game. We suggest you to taste it with very aged cheeses and chili-pepper flavored chocolate.
