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 for Rosso Montalcino comes from the Antinori vineyards at the Pian delle Vigne Estate located at altitudes of 130-200 m above the Orcia river to the south of the town of Montalcino. The vines have an age of about 20 years.
After a careful selection both in the vineyard and in the cellar, the grapes were destemmed and delicately pressed; the must then went into temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks where it fermented and remained on its skins at a controlled temperature to preserve as much as possible the aromatic components. After the malolactic fermentation was completed, the wine went into large oak casks, where it began a twelve month period of ageing before bottling.
Colour: Brilliant ruby red.Longevity 5-10 years.
