Few brands capture La Dolce Vita quite like Dolce & Gabbana. The Italian fashion house is one that paints a pretty picture of family and pasta and laughter and lemons, all through a high fashion, storied lens.

Sadly, our European summer sojourn dreams have been dashed this year, but a tiny taste of Sicily is still within reach. Dolce & Gabbana have announced the launch of Rosa, an impossibly light summer Rosé produced in partnership with Donnafugata wines.

The pale pink drop is a 2019 vintage and features a blend of Nerello Mascalese and Nocera, two of Sicily’s most esteemed grape varieties. According to the brand, it’s floral and delicate and slightly mineral, laced with notes of wild strawberry, peach and bergamot. The name Rose even bears symbolic meaning – the rose flower is a D&G signature, be it a top note in house fragrance of emblazoned on a floral flared mini dress.

But most importantly, the wine is dry and crisp and begging to be shared among close friends with a bowl of pasta and a few ice cubes for good measure. Available from June, it’s also the perfect way to scale up your quarantino vino, a designer drop sure to bring a little light to lazy isolation happy hours.
