TASTE
Earlier-drinking than its big brother, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, this wine offers bright ruby colour, floral aromas and hints of black currant, a medium-bodied palate and a long mineral finish.

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 Braccesca vineyards cover 256 hectares: 154 between Cortona and Montepulciano, 280-300 metres above sea level, with a clay-silt soil; and 102 hectares in the heartland of great Vino Nobile, on a stony red clay soil. The grapes were picked over a period of about a month.

WINERY
The grapes were destemmed and gently crushed, then fermented in stainless steel with a ten-day maceration. The wine was then moved to oak for the malolactic fermentation and four months’ ageing.
