The Antinori family has been committed to the art of winemaking for over six centuries since 1385 when Giovanni di Piero Antinori became a member, of the “Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri”, the Florentine Winemakers’ Guild. All throughout its history, twenty-six generations long, the Antinori family has managed the business directly making innovative and sometimes bold decisions while upholding the utmost respect for traditions and the environment.
The grapes were picked variety by variety, then destemmed and pressed before enterings into stainless fermentation tanks. The fermentation was carried out at controlled temperatures to fully bring out varietal character and conserve fruity and flora notes. The period of skin contact was approximately 10 days for the Sangiovese, 15 days for the Merlot and Syrah, and the extraction techniques were aimed at the achievement of soft and supple tannins. At the end of the malolactic fermentation, the wine was assembled and went into Slavonian oak casks, where it aged for approximately nine months before bottling.
Colour: Ruby red with purple highlights
Bouquet: The wine shows intensely fruity notes of cherries and red currants on the nose which fuse very well with the typical sensations of violets which characterize Chianti Classico. Very delicate and quite well integrated smoky sensations created by the oak ageing.
Taste: The palate is savory with a tasty vein of acidity together with silky and polished tannins.
Longevity 5-10 years
