About the Wine

This is stainless steel fermented and aged white wine from the small island of Elba, just west of Tuscany, surrounded by the Tyrrhenian Sea. If you're ever in the region, visit this island west of Livorno and east of Corsica, for some of the best fish and wine you can find anywhere.

A small family affair, The key distinction here is that the wine is aged on the lees for six months while in tank. This gives the wine an amazing texture and umami quality. Fresh, vibrant and a lemon-lime acidity make this a perfect pair for any food with lemon juice, vinegar (salads), or fried foods.

This is one of our armchair travel wines to tour Italy from your home. Ansonica is known as Insolia in nearby Sicily.

According to legend, the Tuscan Archipelago was formed when the goddess of beauty and love, Venus, lost her necklace in the waters of the Tyrrhenian. There is a degree of truth in this charming myth because there is no doubt that the islands of this Archipelago are fragments of paradise.

Few places in the world can boast such wealth and variety in so small an area; from the enchanting depths of the sea, a paradise for divers, to the wooded heights, from the beaches and bays framed by the Mediterranean maquis, to the tiny, hillside towns immersed in the peaceful timelessness of yesteryear.

The Tuscan Archipelago offers something for everyone; sports, relaxing in the sun, history, culture, and, naturally, excellent food and wines.

Bouquet: Complex, Intense and fine, aromas of white flowers, citrus fruits, peach, and apricot

Taste: Dry and fresh, with good acidity and with flavors of flowers, yellow and tropical fruits. Tasty and persistent

Blend: 85% Ansonica, 15% other grapes

Special Note about the Wine Label:

The wine label of this wine refers to an underlying mathematic principle from the famous physicist and mathematician, Roger Penrose, comprising six geometric shapes, including three apparently equal pentagons.

Each figure is to be viewed with a pair of joints and each male must only join with its corresponding female joint. Thus, a non-repeating yet infinite pattern is generated.
