Producer
The Antinori family have been producing wine in Tuscany for six centuries, and exporting it for four. The purchase of the Tignanello estate in 1900 marked the beginning of a remarkable period of expansion which shows no signs of abating. Through judicious acquisition of vineyards and an uncanny knack for developing iconic wines, Antinori has become Tuscany’s – arguably Italy’s – pre-eminent wine producer, with an important presence in Piedmont, Lombardy, Umbria and Puglia as well as their Tuscan heartland.

Vineyard
Grapes were grown in the vineyards of Antinori’s Fattoria Aldobrandesca estate near the historical village of Sovana in southern Tuscany. Grapes were harvested very ripe, with high natural sugar content.

Winery
Some of the grapes were fermented immediately after picking, while the rest were set aside for thirty days drying to concentrate the sugars further. For each batch, destemming and gentle crushing were followed by cold maceration for seven days, in order to maximize extraction of aroma and colour. After separation from the skins, the must was fermented below 20oC; fermentation was halted part-way through by rapid cooling. The wine was kept at a low temperature until bottling.

Taste
Bright and aromatic on the nose, with hints of red fruit and roses, typical of the variety. The palate is sweet without being heavy, offsetting the abundant fruit with mineral notes.
