Winery Information

Antinori

Antinori is currently led by Marchese Piero Antinori, the latest of 26 generations to run the family business. The documented history of the Antinori family stretches back as far as the 12th Century, although it was in the century that followed that they arrived in Tuscany. The family business was wine, and in 1385 Giovanni di Pieri Antinori..

Vinification Notes

Upon arrival in the cellar, the grapes were gently pressed and each grape variety was fermented separately to maintain and accentuate its own unique characteristics. The must was then cooled down to a controlled temperature of 10° C (50°F) for 24 hours to favor a natural settling of the impurities. The clarified must was then transferred to temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for alcoholic fermentation at 16°C (61° F). Vivia was aged on the lees for a short period in stainless steel tanks for approximately three months before being bottled in January 2019
