Producer: The Antinori family have been producing wine in Tuscany for six centuries, and exporting it for four. The purchase of the Tignanello estate in 1900 marked the beginning of a remarkable period of expansion which shows no signs of abating. Through judicious acquisition of vineyards and an uncanny knack for developing iconic wines, Antinori has become Tuscany's - arguably Italy's - pre-eminent wine producer, with an important presence in Piedmont, Lombardy, Umbria and Puglia as well as their Tuscan heartland.

Vineyard: This wine is produced from grapes from the Orvieto Classico appellation, which encompasses the area around the alluvial cliff on which the city of Orvieto is located.

Winery: After destemming and a gentle pressing, the must was cooled to 10C to aid natural clarification. It was then racked to temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks where fermentation took place at temperatures not exceeding 18C. In order to preserve the wine's freshness and aromas, it was kept at a temperature of 10C until bottling.

Taste: The nose shows both floral and fruity notes, particularly pineapple and banana, while the palate is medium-bodied, with more fruit and a round, delicate finish.
