PRESS
“A dark, inky red, this features a smooth texture backing the blackberry, boysenberry, iron and meaty flavors. Concentrated and powerful, yet polished, with well-integrated tannins and a lingering finish. Malbec.” – 92 points, Wine Spectator, October 2016

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. The grapes were harvested at full maturity in late September.

WINERY
The grapes were destemmed and gently crushed, then given 3-4 days’ cold maceration. The must was then warmed, inoculated and fermented over the course of a week at up to 30oC, before being transferred to French and American oak barriques for malolactic fermentation and ten months’ ageing.

TASTE
An intense ruby red in colour, the wine is characterised by a complex nose of ripe black fruit, liquorice and spices. On the palate, the texture is silky and full with excellent density and persistence. Notes of ripe black fruit, liquorice, coffee and dark chocolate emerge on the finish.
