Extensive plantings of this variety are found on the west coast of Sicily where it is made into a wine commonly blended with the Grillo and Catarrato Bianco grape wines in order to create the famous dry and sweet “Marsala” white wines of historical significance. The grape is also found in Tuscany region of Italy where it is known by the alias name Ansonica and used to make (eg.) a dry white wine described as “medium bodied with a salty but short taste”. On the island of Elba it is used to make sweet dessert wines in the passito style (ie. from grapes dried on the vine etc).
