Ansonica Dell’Elba DOC
Rocky, clay and sandy soil, originating from rock erosion and fluvial processes.
Vines trained using Guyot and spurred cordon systems.
Manual in ventilated crates
The grapes, selected on the vine, are de-stemmed and allowed to macerate in the press for several hours; following a soft pressing, the must is decanted cold into steel tanks, before being fermented in a controlled temperature between 16 and 18°C. There is no malolactic fermentation.
The wine is aged “sur lies” firstly in inox steel tanks and then in steam bent and only slightly toasted well aged French oak barrels.
Golden yellow with greenish reflections, the bouquet is enveloping with delicate hints of lily of the valley eucalyptus and linden flowers which are articulated with fruity sensations of crunchy yellow apple and light citrus accents with woody contours. The taste is voluminous and elegant, characterized by the dense touch of velvety tannins. The sweet savory finish is very long with hints of boxwood and white peach.
The Ansonica dell’Elba DOC is one of the most important references of the company, offshoot of one of the most representative vines of Elba.
