Donnafugata White Blend Sicilia IGT Anthìlia 2006

Member Review by shsim:

Literally translates as the land in literature. It is made from mainly Catarratto, which I have not tried this grape before so it was fun! I had this as part of a Donnafugata tasting which was wonderful especially because we had Silvia, the North American representative to talk more about the wines. This wine had plenty of bouquet. Light and floral, this was smooth and almost seems like it has a touch of cream like freshly churned cream with infused flowers like lavender. Yummy! And it is decently priced!

Donnafugata:
Donnafugata grew out of the commitment of a family in Sicily that has always believed in the extraordinary enological potential of its land and has 150 years of experience in producing premium wines. Convinced that it is always necessary to be open to change in order to grow and improve, Giacomo Rallo and his wife, Gabriella, launched a new production project in 1983: Donnafugata.

Donnafugata grew out of the commitment of a family in Sicily that has always believed in the extraordinary enological potential of its land and has 150 years of experience in producing premium wines. Convinced that it is always necessary to be open to change in order to grow and improve, Giacomo Rallo and his wife, Gabriella, launched a new production project in 1983: Donnafugata. Their adventure took wing from the family’s historic cellars in Marsala and the vineyards at Contessa Entellina in the heart of western Sicily and soared as far as the island of Pantelleria. Their children, José and Antonio, joined them and the house accelerated its march along the path of Extreme Quality: a project that focused on attention to detail, which clears the way for entrepreneurial decisions that ever more advanced objectives. As for the future, the young Gabriella and Ferdinando are already being “fully immersed” in the family’s activities Read less

Anthilia ein fruchtiger weißer Individualist aus Ansonica und Catarratto, rund und elegant. Schöne, gelbe Farbe. 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.Feine Säure, aromatisch, ausladend, breit, mundfüllend frisch mit angenehmem, fruchtigem Nachhall.

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.

Wine Tasting NotesThe wine shows a precise personality linked with extremely sweet and elegant fruity sensations and notes of yellow peaches and plums. On the palate, sapidity and softness unite. 50% Ansonica, 50% Cattarratto
