The wines of Argentario
Land and sea: a symbiotic relationship that in Argentario, offers beautiful views and authentic flavours. Here, cultivating vineyards has retained its strong identity over the years. Growing on the terraces overlooking the sea is the white grape Ansonica, the fruit to have found home in the microclimate of Monte Argentario and the Tuscan Maremma.
The Ansonica Costa dell’Argentario DOC wine that originates from the native vine of the same name, grows in Argentario and on the Isola del Giglio. With a slightly fruity bouquet, this straw-coloured wine has a dry yet soft taste to pair exceptionally well with the seafood delights of the Torre d’Argento Restaurant. The grapes of this variety are extensively worked in the vineyard to reduce the number of bunches per plant and the size of the single bunch. Harvesting occurs in early October when the sugars and aromatic precursors reach their highest concentrations. In the first stages of processing, the must is refrigerated to as low as 10° C to preserve the precious characteristics of the end product. The fermentation at controlled temperature follows a long ageing on noble lees, with daily bâtonnage.
Another wine produced in the Monte Argentario cellars is the Maremma Toscana IGT from the Province of Grosseto. The Maremma Toscana IGT denomination represents one of the most important wine-growing areas of the region. It is a fascinating area, able to express excellent wines with a sunny characteristic and Mediterranean profile thanks to the beautiful hilly exposures along with the hot and dry climate, mitigated by proximity to the sea.
The cellars of Argentario
