Ruby-red color. On the palate the wine is smooth, which is the result of perfectly ripe grapes along with sensations of coffee, chocolate, mint, and licorice. The wine impresses for its finesse and structure and is characterized by great elegance and aging potential, with its soft and velvety tannins.
75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Sangiovese, 5% Cabernet Franc. Bottled by Antinori, a family who has been involved in the production of wine for over six centuries ever since 1385 when Giovanni di Piero Antinori became a member of Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri (the "Winemakers' Guild of Florence"). The Palazzo Antinori ("Antinori Palace") is located in Piazza Antinori, just a short distance away from the Arno river. An architectural jewel of the Renaissance, it numbers some 50 rooms and has been the family's residence and offices since 1506.
