Created by the interaction between the experience of the Antinori family and the demonstrated high viticultural quality of a territory, Franciacorta, the ”Vintage Dated” - Marchese Antinori Conte Aimo, Contessa Maggi, and Donna Cora – are produced from selected Chardonnay, Pinot Nero, and Pinot Bianco grapes and are made only in exceptional vintage.

TASTING NOTES
A light yellow in color with greenish highlights, the wine shows intense and persistent aromas. On the palate, the notes of white fruit give the wine elegance and finesse. The ideal serving temperature for the wine is between 45° and 48° Fahrenheit (7°-9° centigrade)

FOOD PAIRING
Matches with food and occasions for drinking: The finesse and elegance which characterize this wine make it particularly suitable for entrées of medium flavor intensity as well as for white meat, fish soups, and, more in general, fish dishes of all kinds.

PRODUCER 
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.

VINEYARD
The estate is located in the heart of the Franciacorta production zone around the centuries-old hamlet of Calino. The vine has always been cultivated in this area of important wines. Some in fact maintain that “Franciacorta” has its origin in the phrase “Petite France”, an affectionate name given to it by Charlemagne.
The Montenisa estate is located around the hamlet of Calino, near Lake Iseo in the heart of the Franciacorta appellation. The vineyards surrounding the proprietary villa of the Maggi family have been the heart of the production of Marchese Antinori Franciacorta since 1999.

WINERY 
The must was fermented partly in stainless steel tanks and partly in oak barrels. The second fermentation took place in bottle and the wine remained on its lees for 60 months before dégorgement.

Blanc de noirs, Metodo Classico and commercially released since 2017.A very godo effort, round and very approachable, touch of a confectionery edge, good mineral side though and a bit of a saline finish. A very good effort but we prefer their Impero Blanc de Noir still wine ( Papies 90). 88 but a solid effort.
