Isola del Giglio

Isola del Giglio

One of Tuscany’s true hidden treasures, this stupendous granite island off the Tuscan coast is home to just a handful of wine growers. They produce literally only a few barrels each year of amazingly flavored, amber-white wine made of Ansonica grapes. Few bottles ever leave the island, so to taste it, you’ll have to visit and try it with the superb local seafood. Tell no one.
