Why do we love it?

With the two biggest Sicilian names, Dolce & Gabbana and Donnafugata on the same label, expectations are already high! Rosa Donnafugata and Dolce & Gabbana 2021 resulted from the collaboration between the house of Dolce & Gabbana and the legendary Donnafugata winery. Both natives of Sicily and great ambassadors of Italy worldwide, they have been collaborating for years, with Donnafugata's wines accompanying the incomparably prestigious displays of the house of Dolce & Gabbana. Show after show, they decided to work together to produce an amazing rosé wine!

The Donnafugata winery spreads its vineyards next to Europe's highest volcano, Etna, in the area of Contessa Entellina and next door from Sicily, on the small island of Pantelleria, while the aging wines are housed mainly in the historic cellars of Marsala. It was founded in 1983 Gabriella Anca Rallo, known as a benefactor of Sicilian wine, and her husband Giacomo Rallo, 4th generation of a family of winemakers.

Rosa Donnafugata and Dolce Gabbana 2021 is produced from two historic Sicilian varieties, Nerello Mascalese from the the steep vineyards of Etna at an altitude of around 700 meters and the ancient, almost forgotten Nocera variety from the vineyards of Contessa Entellina. Nerello Mascalese adds complexity, floral aromas and minerality while Nocera adds refreshing acidity and fruity character. If we haven't already convinced you, check out the artful label and incredible packaging designed by Dolce & Gabanna for this rosé and answer us this. Are you keeping it for yourself or giving it as a gift? We would keep it.

1 big octopus
250 gr. tubetti half pasta
1 big onion 
1 teaspoon tomato paste
150 gr. tomato sauce or concasse tomato 
50 ml. cognac
1 teaspoon of sugar
2 bay leaves                                                                                            3-4 grains of all spice

Olive oil
1.100 ml. hot vegetable or seafood broth or water

In a saucepan, put the octopus, with a bay leaf, to braise over low heat. The octopus will release its liquids, especially if it is frozen, to boil but if necessary add a little hot water. When it is softened and red, remove it from the fire and cut it into small pieces.

Chop the onion and saute it to 50 ml. olive oil along with the octopus, for 3-4 minutes. Then, put in the cognac, add the spices and the other bay leaf. Add the tomato paste, sugar, tomatoes or sauce and a cup of broth or water. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.

Transfer to a moderate baking dish, add the remaining hot broth or water, 50 ml. olive oil and stir. Taste it and add salt if necessary.
Bake in a well preheated oven at 175 ° C for about 25 minutes or until the pasta is cooked, stirring regularly.

Serve the pasta with the octopus hot as soon as it comes out of the oven!
