Producer
Antinori first bought land on the Tenuta Braccesca estate in 1990, situated in southeast Tuscany, between the towns of Montepulciano and Cortona. The former is known for the Sangiovese that ripens into rich Vino Nobile, while the latter is home to Italy’s best Syrah.

Vineyard
The stony foothills around the town of Cortona have proved ideally suited to international red varieties, and Syrah in particular. Around mid- September the grapes had received optimal state of maturity, and after a thinning out of excessive bunches, the remainding grapes were picked.

Winery
Crushed grapes underwent a three-week fermentation in stainless steel, at temperatures not exceeding 28°C. The wine was then transferred into new French oak barrels for malolactic, after which the wine spent a further eighteen months in barrels before bottling.

Taste
This benchmark Tuscan Syrah offer an intense fragrance, with subtle hints of vanilla blended with notes of mature fruit. It is well balanced and elegant in the mouth, with flavors of red fruit and white plum, and a soft, lingering finish.

Press
“Dense and concentrated, featuring glossy blackberry, plum, spice and tar flavors. Balanced, with tannins meshing well with the texture and ripe fruit. Fine length.” – 92 points, Wine Spectator, June 2016

“a gorgeous interpretation of this celebrated Rhône Valley variety. In the past, American oak was used to age this wine, but this in no longer the case. The winery has opted for French oak instead for moderated tones of spice and tobacco. The wines offers soft layers of blackberry, cured meat and white peppercorn. The tannins are rich and velvety.” – 92 points, The Wine Advocate, September 2015
