Produced for the first time in 2019, AMOR represents the joining of Ansonica + Morisfarms and expresses our love for the Ansonica grape varietal. This wine is bright and sunny with intense notes of almond, peach, and the wild flora of the Mediterranean scrub. Silky in texture with a long finish and low in acidity, AMOR makes for a fabulous pairing with fatty white fish or salmon.

The harvest occurs in mid-October. The grapes are then pressed and the must obtained is separated and statically cold racked. All must handling processes are carried out under the protection of dry ice to protect it from oxidation. Fermentation takes place in steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 18 ° C for about 21 days. After the first racking, the wine remained on its lees for up to 45 days before bottling.
The Poggetti Estate lies in the Northern part of the Tuscan Maremma, among rolling hillsides just 7 km from the Tyrrhenian Sea. It extends over an area of 423 hectares (1,045 acres), of which about 37 hectares (91 acres) are dedicated to vines. The vines benefit from hot temperatures, long sun exposure, and cool evenings during the growing season. The vineyard's proximity to the sea lends its wines a particularly appreciated salinity and minerality. The dynamic, mineral-rich soil typical of the Metallurgic Hills endows the grapes grown on it with rich tannins and great personality.
