Antillo means “sunny place” and suits perfectly our vineyards. Our territory, whose viticul-ture dates back to the Etruscans, is characterized precisely by an intense light, the sea bree-zes, and a climate tempered by the proximity of the sea. Local historical varieties come to-gether in this Bolgheri Red, the youngest of ours: the oldest Sangiovese and varieties that have shaped the recent history of the Denomination. The care of our work of vineyardist gi-ves birth to a harmonious wine, fruity and lively.In the label, from an Etruscan amphora, there is a picture with leaves and clusters of gra-pes.
Vinified without correctives or additives which would alter the original characteristics of the grapes. Refined on the lees for 12 months in oak barrels (only 10% new) and in bottle.
