"Anthilia" Sicilia DOC 2021 - Donnafugata

Since 1983, the year of its first harvest, Anthìlia, now classified Sicilia Doc Bianco, has been a classic of Donnafugata's production, appreciated all over the world. It is made from Lucido grapes, the typical name of the Catarratto vine, in clear predominance, blended with other typical vines. It's a very fresh wine, able to make our imagination fly towards summers by the sea, even if outside the window the weather doesn't give us any respite and it has been raining continuously for days. Anthìlia has a beautiful straw yellow colour. The nose offers a fresh and fragrant bouquet with notes of white-fleshed fruit, especially peach, combined with hints of wild flowers. In the mouth there is a perfect correspondence with what has been perceived before, with the addition of a pleasant savouriness and a finish that is surprising for its length. To make our guests happy, if this wine is at the centre of the table, you don't need to be a Masterchef. Very little is needed. A tasty bruschetta with tomato and basil, for example, or a spaghetti with seafood. And if you don't have time to cook, with a glass of Anthìlia di Donnafugata even the classic Caesar salad takes on a different flavour.

There are companies that every wine lover thinks he knows everything about. Simply because they have always represented the world of Italian wine. Among these, there is no doubt that a special place is occupied by Donnafugata. A winery that for many is synonymous with Sicily and quality wine. A historic brand owned by the Rallo family, Donnafugata produces wines in different areas of Sicily. From east to west, from Trapani to Mount Etna, there is no wine-producing area in Sicily where Donnafugata does not have a vineyard. What few people know, however, is that the name Donnafugata is due to Gabriella Rallo, the wife of the founder and mother of the two enterprising managers of the company today. Gabriella Anca Rallo, a courageous woman with a flair for innovation, was a pioneer of quality viticulture in Sicily. She is the real "donnafugata" (woman on the run) who abandoned her job as a teacher to take care of the Contessa Entellina vineyards full-time. One of the first women in Sicily to produce wine, in a sector typically dominated by men. A true pioneer of quality wine-growing by women. All that remains, therefore, is to say thank you to Gabriella. For being so brave and for inspiring all this. Cheers!
