Local food and wine at Island of Elba

The traditions of a farming populations and those of the many people that came from far away have generated simple but tasty dishes, spiced with herbs from Mediterranean vegetation, accompanied by excellent locally produced white wines such as Ansonica that come from ancient vines: Rio style stock-fish, “gurguglione” (a stew made of Mediterranean vegetables), “sburrita” salted dried codfish. The recipes based on game, wild vegetables and chestnuts will be accompanied by dry red wines with a special taste. The cakes are dry being born to last a long time, for example “schiaccia ‘briaca” (drunken flat cake), “sportella” a sweet bread with aniseed, given by fiancés as a fertility wish for Easter, all should be tasted with Aleatico or Moscat wine or Limoncino (a lemon spirit).
