Antinori first bought land on the Tenuta Braccesca estate in 1990, situated in southeast Tuscany, between the towns of Montepulciano and Cortona. The former is known for the Sangiovese that ripens into rich Vino Nobile, while the latter is home to Italy’s best Syrah.

The Braccesca vineyards cover 256 hectares: 154 between Cortona and Montepulciano, 280-300 metres above sea level, with a clay-silt soil; and 102 hectares in the classic heartland of Vino Nobile, on a stony red clay soil.

Following destemming and soft crushing, the grapes underwent maceration with fermentation that lasted for ten days. The wine was then racked into large oak casks where the malolactic fermentation took place, followed by twelve months’ ageing.
