Antillo Bolgheri DOC Red
THE WINE: Together with other minor varieties, Sangiovese has always been part of the local viticultural tradition. With a careful selection, a reduced yield, a sensitive vinification and lightly measured wood we have given a new expression to this tradition. This way, an intensive, well-balanced and lively wine, characterized by a typical fruity aroma has been created.
THE NAME: Antillo, born as a wordplay, means “sunny place”, and suits perfectly our vineyards.
