Ansonica

Tuscany, Italy

Formiche is comprised of four friends: Simone, Gigi, Dylan, and a second Simone. Three winemakers and an agronomist who crossed paths and shared experiences in various parts of the world before finding themselves back in Tuscany. The project was born from the two-day reunions they would organize once a month to have dinner and blind-taste various wines. It took a couple of years to find the small 2 hectare parcel they began with. South of the Maremma coast in a town called Capalbio, just a few kilometers from the sea. The 30+ year old vines enjoy very pleasant sea breezes, which mitigate the hot spikes in temperature and help keep consistently healthy plants year-round. The old rows of Ansonica were quite dilapidated, but with their own hands, pruning shears, and a huge amount of courage, they bought the vineyard back to life. The grapes see about 10 days of skin contact and the wine is aged on fine lees in old Barriques. (SelectioNaturel)
