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 Antinori family first became involved with the Prunotto winery in 1989 initially handling distribution and then in 1994, they took over production upholding the excellent quality standards that Alfredo Prunotto successfully achieved. The winery's production philosophy, always extremely attentive to details and deeply passionate about wine, brought Prunotto and the Antinori family together to face a new challenge: to explore and develop the potential of this new terroir where both local and international varieties can express the area's remarkable territorial identity. The Prunotto estate covers an area of approximately 65 hectares with vineyards in the very best wine producing zones in Piemonte.
The selected Nebbiolo grape bunches were destemmed and pressed. The fermentation with skin contact lasted a total of fifteen days at maximum temperatures of 30° C. The wine was aged 24 months in oak casks and a further twelve month period of bottle ageing in the Prunotto cellars preceded commercial release.
