Winemaker's Notes:

Intense ruby red in color with aromas of blackberry and cherry, along with hints of spice and tobacco from careful aging in barrel. On the palate the wine is concentrated with notes of vanilla and chocolate, supple and soft in tannins and accompanied by the vibrant acidity that characterizes the Sangiovese grape. Th e wine has great complexity and length on the finish.

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.
