WS 89pts WA 88pts - Donnafugata's Sedara is one of those great wines we love to talk about. The wine is predominately Nero D'Avola with a bit of Merlot, Cabernet, and Syrah rounding out the blend. Wine Spectator rated this wine 89, and Wine Advocate gave it 88 points stating, "It is a gorgeous wine best suited to near-term drinking." Ripe fruit and spice makes this a great choice for the dinner table.

Anthilia ein fruchtiger weißer Individualist aus Ansonica und Catarratto, rund und elegant. Im Bouquet Noten von gelben Pfirsichen, Pflaumen und Anklänge an Blumen der mediterranen Macchia. Am Gaumen verschmelzen Würze und Weichheit zu einem angenehmen, schmeichelnden Unisono.

winemaker's notes: The label displays the face of a woman, mysterious and fleeting, like the Elymian civilization. Anthilia is the name, given in the Roman period, to the city of Entella on the crest of the Rocca. Anthilia is also the name of a wine that is identified with the ancient territory where it originates. It is the first wine to have been conceived at Donnafugata and it remains today a special favorite of many admirers. The wine shows a precise personality of fruity and floral sensations, round and elegant.

Winemaker's Notes:

The Chardonnay is harvested at night in August and the Ansonica is picked in September. They are vinified separately. The must, obtained by soft pressing, is fermented at controlled temperatures and matured ‘sur lies’ for 5-6 months, half in small cement tanks and half in French oak (barriques and tonneaux of Burgundy). Aged in bottles for at least 24 months before its release to the market

Tasting Notes:

: A wine with personality and elegance, it combines power and softness. Aromas of ripe yellow fruit, especially apples, and notes of peaches and vanilla fused with peanut butter. The flavour is round and mouth-filling. An imposing structure with a perfect balance of acidity and flavour. Excellent ageing potential
