Food pairing

If you remember Alain Delon in the famous movie that Luchino Visconti made from Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa's The Leopard, you will see that this wine reflects the elegance and ambition of that "revolutionary" man. The label refers to the wineries at Contessa Entellina but they are placed on a cloud as in a mirage, as in "Viaggio a Donnafugata," composed by Nino Rota for Visconti.

Tasting notes

Deep ruby red, Tancredi 2014 is characterized by a fragrant bouquet, notes of red fruit (cherry and cranberry) combined with floral scents (violet) and accompanied by delicate tertiary scents of sweet tobacco, cacao and spices (cloves and black pepper). In the mouth it offers a structure with important and well-integrated tannins. An enveloping and persistent finish.

Vintage

The 2014 vintage was characterized by a fairly balanced climatic trend, marked by a relatively mild winter and a cool, rainy spring. Overall, from 1 October 2013 to 30 September 2014, 620 mm of rainfall was recorded: a slightly lower figure compared to the average of the last 10 years, with rainfall concentrated in the spring months. July and August passed without excesses of heat and with an excellent temperature range between day and night, thus favoring the production of particularly fresh and balanced wines.
