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 carefully selected from Antinori’s Pèppoli estate in Chianti Classico. The vineyards are planted in a valley on mineral-rich soil, ideal for the cultivation of Sangiovese. A hot summer was followed by very favourable conditions in September, during which the best grapes were carefully picked

Winery

The grape varieties were fermented separately, the Sangiovese with ten days of skin contact, the Merlot and Syrah for longer, to obtain softer tannin. After fermentation and malolactic fermentation, the varieties were blended. The wine was aged for twelve months in oak, ninety percent in large Slavonian casks and the rest in American oak barriques.
