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 Sabazio Rosso di Montepulciano is primarily made from Prugnolo Gentile grapes (the local clone of Sangiovese) growing at around 280 meters above sea level. The grapes for were hand picked around mid-September. After a seven day fermentation in stainless steel tanks, the wine went into large oak casks where it went through a complete malolactic fermentation and began an ageing period which lasted approximately four months. The wine was then prepared for bottling. The weather of the growing season gave wines with more fragrance and fruit than body, and the fermentation sought to bring out the first rather than the second set of characteristics.

Colour: A brilliant ruby red

Bouquet: The nose is struck by the fresh floral and fruity notes of violets and red currants.

Taste: It is elegant and silky with a sweet and fruity finish which brings back the aromas first felt on the nose.

Longevity 5-10 years
