From Antinori Family that has been committed to the art of winemaking for over six centuries.
A wine that represents the Chianti Classico territory (a wide area located between Florence and Siena) and its historic grape variety.

Upon completion of malolactic fermentation, the blend was assembled and transferred into barrels where it aged for approximately 9 months in large Slavonian oak, a small percentage in barrique and stainless steel vats. Bottling took place in December 2018.
