Sale price£93.00


Marchese Antinori is ruby red in color. On the nose are intense notes of cherry, violet, lavender, slight sensations of iron typical of Sangiovese, and additionally, spicy notes of tobacco and leather. Its bouquet is completed by delicate hints of vanilla and cocoa powder. Its palate is mouth-filling, generous, and lively with excellent compact tannins that give it a lengthy persistent finish. Exceptional aftertaste characterized by red fruit and licorice.

In the cellar, the grapes are gently de-stemmed and pressed. Maceration takes place in stainless steel tanks through soft extraction methods. Fermentation lasted about eight days and the wine remained in contact with its skins for another nine to ten days. The wine is then racked and aged for a year in French or Hungarian oak barrels. The wine is then blended and aged for 12 months before release.
