Winemaker's Notes:

This blend of 80% Chardonnay, 20% Grechetto is very fruity and complex on the nose, with hints of vanilla and excellent varietal character. In the mouth it is structured with a very long finish.

"Wonderful aromas of apple pie, honey and cream follow through to a full body, with toasted coconut and rich tropical fruit on the palate. Very long. Always an excellent white. Chardonnay and Grechetto."

About Antinori:

The Antinori family of Florence, one of the world's oldest and most distinguished wine producers, has lived in Tuscany since the 14th century and celebrated its 625th anniversary as wine makers in 2010. The current company president, Marchese Piero Antinori, believes in the tradition that the primary role of wine is to accompany food and enhance the dining experience. In Florence, the Antinori family has led a "Renaissance" in Italian wine making by combining long traditions, a love of authenticity and a dynamic innovative spirit.
