Inzolia, aka Ansonica, has a long and important history in Sicily, primarily as one of the base grapes used in the production of Marsala wine. Now used to produce table wine, it’s a grape that can produce notably rich, if flabby, wines if harvested too late. But when picked at the right moment, the wine can bring considerable richness and structure with its almond- and herb-inflected fruit flavors, yet remains lively in the mouth.
Waxy and lightly smoky on the nose with a nice base of grapefruit, topped with floral and orange oil aromas. Simple, clean and refreshing in the mouth, this shows off light melon flavors framed with citrus and mineral accents. It's almost medium-bodied and easy to drink, with a lovely touch of astringency on the finish that refreshes the palate. 85 points
