Vinification: After destemming and gentle pressing, the must was cooled to 10 °C to promote natural clarification and then transferred to stainless steel tanks. Alcoholic fermentation at temperatures of not more than 18 °C followed. The wine rested for a short time in stainless steel vats at 10°C to retain its aromas and was then filtered and bottled.
The Antinori family has been producing wine for over six hundred years: since 1385, when Giovanni di Piero Antinori joined the Florentine wine-growers' and wine merchants' guild. Throughout its long history of 26 generations, the family has always managed the business directly and made innovative and often courageous decisions without ever losing sight of traditions and the region. Today the winery is managed by Marchese Piero Antinori, supported by the three subsidiaries Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, which are responsible for certain divisions. Tradition, passion and intuition have made Antinori one of the leading Italian producers of quality wines.
