Crafted from an ancient coastal vineyard in Santa Potenziana, a historic place in southern Maremma, Tuscany, the Santa Lucia 2019 Ansonica was made from centuries-old Ansonica vines that are surrounded by dry stone walls. Ansonica is one of the oldest native vines of Sicily and is planted throughout the island, and in Tuscany it can only be found in the coastal Maremma region.

A crisp, dry white wine, Ansonica is known for its nutty, citrusy characters with slight herbal notes. Straw yellow in color, the 2019 Ansonica has an intense bouquet of ripe fruit with notes of yellow apples and fresh herbs. The full body offers fresh acidity and a fruity, appley finish. Enjoy!
