Donnafugata Sicilia Anthìlia 2019

Score by 

James Suckling

 

92 points

Sliced apples, apple blossom, white peaches and wet stones on the nose. It’s medium-bodied and creamy, yet refreshing with fresh and ripe fruit. Crisp acidity and nice tension on the finish.

A medium-bodied red with aromas and flavors of fresh strawberries, raspberries, dried lavender and spices. Some smokiness, too. Elegant and refined with sleek tannins and a tight finish.

Score by 

James Suckling

 

 

93 Points

 

Aromas of dried cranberries and cherries interlace with crushed oyster shell, iron and volcanic ash. More ash and bitter berries on the palate. It’s medium-bodied with elegant, silky tannins and a complex, savory character. Better in two or three years.

Pale golden-amber color. A full-bodied, sweet white with evolving layers of honey, lilies, candied ginger, peaches, kumquats and lychees. So luscious, complex and balanced. Incredibly long finish.
