The Antinori family is one of the longest-lived wine dynasties in Tuscany; in fact, it has been producing wine in the region for 25 generations, exactly since 1385. The company takes its name from the locality of the same name, 6 km south-west from Montalcino, and has 185 hectares of land of which 65 are under vineyards and highly suited to the production of wine . The estate has been in family ownership since 1995.
Sangiovese Grosso (locally called Brunello) 100%
The grapes, carefully chosen by Antinori during harvesting, are subjected to 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 phase, after which the wine is transferred to wooden barrels, where it slowly matures over a period of 12 months. During this period, the wine develops its complexity and refinement.
