Anthìlia remains the Donnafugata classic in the 2009 vintage as well.

Fruity, with hints of citrus and peach, and floral notes giving extra complexity, on the palate the 2009 Anthìlia has sapidity and is therefore extremely enjoyable. Delicate and versatile in pairings, especially with seafood. A wine that's never too simple.
"The 2009 Anthilia is a fresh, perfumed offering laced with juicy white peaches, jasmine, grapefruit and mint.
