The Mediterranean is a mystery. The Mediterranean is an authentic reservoir of oenological gems. In this episode of Rare Wines we went in search of artisanal whites that shine on small islands. They are bottles that encapsulate landscapes, stories and clear flavours. This is the case of the Ansonica produced by Fontuccia on Isola del Giglio in Tuscany, just 11 miles from the Argentario Promontory.
Following the same aromatic trail, amidst scents of rocks and sea breezes, we introduce Capri Bianco by Scala Fenicia, proposed by Andrea Koch, on the island of Capri. In this case, we are 17 miles from the Gulf of Naples. Thanks to wine, we can brush up on the agricultural soul of two islands that have now become highly sought-after tourist destinations, recounting a lesser-known profile: old plots and native grapes.
