A grape of eastern origin, typical of the Mediterranean coasts, Ansonica has been cultivated for centuries also in Sicily (where it is called Inzolia) and was taken to the islands of Elba and Giglio and to the coasts of Argentario in the 16th century, at the time of the State of the Garrisons.
The area of DOC production (established in 1995) includes parts of the boroughs of Manciano and Orbetello, and all the borough of Capalbio, the island of Giglio and Mount Argentario.
Our Ansonica maintains the traditional characteristics of this particular grape, incorporating the warmth and scents of the Mediterranean.
