DONNAFUGATA ANTHILIA BIANCO SICILIARating: 89
The Anthilia is made from the Sicilian grape Catarratto, This grape is mostly used in the production of light, easy-drinking white wines. Despite being grown almost exclusively in Sicily, it is one of Italyâs most commonly planted grape varieties, making up around 60 percent of the islandâs total vineyard area. The variety is commonly regarded (and widely used) as a lower-quality blending component, or an ingredient in Marsala wines, as well as grape concentrate. Catarratto is high-yielding and rather neutral-tasting, with low acidity â hardly the benchmarks of a top quality grape. That said, careful vinification from dedicated producers has shown the variety is capable of producing interesting wines with juicy texture and crisp lemon flavors. "A great value wine, the 2015 Sicilia Anthilia is mostly Catarratto with some other white grapes in the blend. The wine shows a fragrant side with white rose and almond blossom backed by preserved lemon, dried grass and crushed oyster shell. Some 790,000 bottles are produced and this wine is easy to locate in foreign markets. If you are looking for a sure bet this is your wine. It pairs well with most easy Mediterranean foods and will not break the bank." Wine Advocate 89+ points.
