Winemaker's Notes:

The wine, straw yellow in color with green highlights, expresses a full range of intense aromas which range from citrus fruit to pears and figs along with acacia flowers, which fuse with hints of vanilla to increase the overall complexity. Its flavors are ample and well structured, very mineral and with sweet notes of hazelnut butter, crispness and tonic vigor. It is destined to age and evolve very well indeed.

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.
