    Description

    The Rosso di Montalcino 3 L by Antinori is a red wine produced in the Pian delle Vigne estate from 100% Sangiovese grapes. A fresh and mineral wine that conquers the hearts of aficionados.

    Tasting notes

    Antinori's Rosso di Montalcino 3 L shows a lively ruby red color in the glass. The nose has notes of ripe red fruit such as plum and red currant, which are mixed with pleasant sensations of dog rose and Mediterranean herbs such as sage and oregano. In the mouth it is lively and fresh, with silky tannins. Aromas of pulpy red fruit give fullness and good persistence.

    Processing

    After the harvest, the grapes are taken to the cellar where they are de-stemmed and softly pressed. Alcoholic fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks for about 8-10 days, at 25 ° C. Finally, Antinori's Rosso di Montalcino 3 L ages in large wooden barrels for about 7 months before being bottled.

    The Cellar

    The Antinori family has been dedicated to wine production for more than six hundred years: since 1385, when Giovanni di Piero Antinori became part of the Florentine Art of the Vinattieri. Through 26 generations, the Antinori family has always managed this business directly, making innovative and sometimes courageous choices, and always maintaining the respect for traditions and for the territory unchanged. Today the company is managed by the Marquis Piero Antinori, with the support of the three daughters all personally involved in the business activities. A path made of tradition, passion and intuition: the Antinori Marquises have established themselves as one of the main Italian wine producers.
