Donnafugata Anthilia Sicilia DOC

A wine reflecting the distinct character of Sicilian whites.  Donnafugata Anthilia Sicilia DOC presents a fresh and fruity bouquet on the nose. A straw yellow color with notes of white-fleshed fruits (apple/pear) combined with scents of wildflowers. On the palate we find the evident fruity note again. It finishes with mineral and good persistence. Fermentation in stainless steel, at a temperature of 14-16°C (57-61° F). Aging in tanks for two months and then at least two months in bottle before release. Still remains one of our favourites of Sicilian whites. Pairs well with oily, buttery dishes such as Risotto in cream sauce or chicken wings!


All you need is:

  • 12 chicken wings/legs
  • rosemary
  • sage
  • Extra virgin olive oil (or regular olive oil)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Sesame Seeds

Chop the aromatic herbs very finely. Massage the chicken with oil, aromatic herbs and pepper. Arrange the legs in a baking pan covered with greaseproof paper, sprinkle with abundant sesame seeds and bake at 180┬░C for about 30 minutes. Turn halfway through cooking. Once cooked pass the chicken under the grill for a few minutes until they are crispy!


"Solid concentration and depth on the nose here, which also manages to be vibrant and focussed. Sliced lemons, apples and apricots are all on offer. The acidity really makes this medium-bodied wine, drawing it out long and keeping it tightly wound all the while." - James Suckling

"White stone fruit and Mediterranean brush aromas form the delicate, enticing nose. On the bright, linear palate, refreshing acidity supports yellow apple, pear and citrus offset by tangy acidity" - Wine Enthusiast

The label depicts the face of a woman, mysterious and fleeting like the Elymian civilization. Anthil├Ča is the name given to the city of Entella on the top of the Rocca in Roman times. Today, Anth├Člia is the name of a win that is identified with the ancient territory where it has its roots. It is the first wine to have been conceived at Donnafugata and still remains to this day in the hearts of many admirers.
