In Tuscany, this grape is referred to as Ansonica. However, its Sicilian counterpart, Inzolia, is both well known and widely accepted as a fundamental element of the classic Sicilian wine repertoire. Well-structured, with notes of almond and citrus, Inzolia is produced primarily in the provinces of Agrigento, Palermo, and Caltanisetta, but is also designated as DOC in the wine regions of Menfi and Sciacca.
Soft and harmonious to the palate, Gracanico is highly regarded and prized among oenophiles and producers alike for its strong bouquet and the ease with which it can be used to cut other Sicilian wines, specifically the Catarratto and Inzolia, resulting in a rich, elevated flavor.
