BUSINESS | Dolce & Gabbana Are Releasing A Rose

MILAN | ITALY – – Dolce & Gabbana love to honour their native country, Italy, and their next project is just that. Another ode to the country they call home, the brand’s latest venture is into Italian wine – more specifically, a Sicilian-inspired rose.

The rose, which will be released in June, is a collaboration with Donnafugata, a Sicilian winery and features a blend of two vines, Nerello Mascalese and Nocera. Famed to the region, the mix is, as Dolce & Gabbana put it, ‘an elegant bouquet of jasmine, enriched with delicate hints of wild strawberry, peach and bergamot’.

Nerello Mascalese hails from Mount Etna and gives an earthy undertone, thanks to the volcanic soil. The Nocera vines are grown in Contessa Entellina and produce a rich, fruity flavor. All the grapes come from the 2019 vintage.

Overall, it sounds like a delicious drop.

The packaging is, of course, another ode to Sicily. Like the luxury brand’s clothing designs, there’s plenty there to signify the local Italian roots. The label was inspired by the iconic carts of Sicily and features a blush rosy palette – a nod to the bottle’s contents.

It isn’t the first time Dolce & Gabbana has ventured into the homes sphere. They have famously collaborated with Smeg for multiple collection, many of which have shown at Milan Design Fair. From toasters to collector’s edition fridges, the D & G mark can be found in kitchens all over the world. Now, wine cellars, too.

There’s no doubt Italy has been hit hard by the coronavirus, meaning it’s a great time to get behind Italian wine. Not to mention the bottle will look great on your dinner table too.

The rose will be available via Dolce & Gabbana in June. There’s no word on price as yet.
