Sangiovese grosso (locally called brunello) 100%
The grapes, carefully chosen by Antinori during the harvest, are subjected to a delicate destemming and pressing. Subsequently, they ferment in steel tanks at a controlled temperature of around 25 degrees Celsius, remaining in maceration for around 8-10 days. Malolactic fermentation follows this stage, after which the wine is transferred to wooden barrels, where it matures slowly over a period of 12 months. During this period, the wine develops its complexity and finesse.
