Ansonica is a quite rare grape-variety grown in Italy since immemorial time. It was probably imported originally from Greece. The contact between the Hellenic and the Mediterranean culture first with the Etruscari and than with the Roman one, enabled the ancient Italian population to appreciate the vene obtained from the grape . This variety has found its ideal environment in Sicily where it is called "Inzonia", and along the Tirrenic coast where it is called "Inzonia", and along the Tirrenic coast where it is known by the name of "Ansonica" . Thanks to its quality and type the wine obtained from this grape in the Grosseto Province has been awarded the D . 0. C . (official quality aknowledgement) under the name of "Ansonica Costa dell'Argentario" in 1995. The Parrina Estate has exploited the Ansonica quality to its highest level by means of a very careful vinification, using a soft pressure on the grapes which allows the use only of the pulp of the fruit. The must is then fermented in stainless steel tanks under temperature-control for 12 days . This wine, using only the Ansonica grapes (100%), has a rather distinctive and fruit fragrance, a straw-yellow colour, and a dry, mellow, harmonious taste.
