A Glasgow restaurant has become the only UK stockist of a new rosé wine produced by Italian fashion house Dolce and Gabbana.

Eusebi Deli in the city's west end will serve Rosa by Sicilian winemaker Donnafugata, which has a financial partnership with the celebrated designers.

Inspired by Sicily, an area said to be close to the designers’ hearts, the pink wine was born from a 2019 vintage and mixed two of the island’s vines; Nerello Mascalese and Nocera.

The Rallo family, who own Donnafugata, has made wine in Marsala in Sicilly since 1851 and their ancient cellars tunnel beneath the city.


Giovanna Eusebi, owner of Eusebi Deli, said: “We are very proud to be the only UK stockist of Rosa, a very special collaboration between Donnafugata and Dolce and Gabbana.

"Self-confessed connoisseurs will pick up on the delicate notes of jasmine and bergamot paired with sweet wild strawberry and peach providing a bouquet of flavours too good to put down. 


"The unique rosé wine transports me to my happy place on the Italian coast, providing some much need escapism from the current pandemic!”

"We recommend enjoying the wine with our hand-dived Scottish scallops with orange butter and almond dish because of its perfectly sweet flavours that nod to this Sicilian partnership."

On the new collaboration Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana said:  'We are Italian, we love to eat and drink a good wine, like Rosa, born from our collaboration with Donnafugata.

"For us it is like tasting the smells of our land, seeing it's colours again and feeling its atmosphere.'

Rosa is available to purchase via the Eusebi Deli’s website or to order when dining at the restaurant.
