  • The 2015 Santa Pia shows an intense ruby red color. The nose is dominated by fragrant notes of ripe cherries and red berry fruit, which well balance the hints of vanilla and spices which are accompanied by a highly pleasurable crispness. The palate is savory, ample and enveloping, and endowed with silky and vibrant tannins and a long and persistent finish and aftertaste.
  • The history of the Italian wine label, Antinori La Braccesca dates back to 1385. The Antinori family, known for its rich winemaking experience, established this brand, which came to be known as one of Italy’s premium wine brands. Giovanni di Piero Antinori became a member of the Florentine Art of the Vinattieri in 1385. Today, 26 generations later, this estate is still run by the Antinorio family members, with the same dedication and respect to the art of winemaking.

    The wines from Antinori are classified on the basis of the geographical areas from where the fruits are produced. They are Chianti Classico, Bolgheri, Montalcino, Tuscan Maremma, Montepulciano, Cortona, Tuscany, Umbria and Franciacorta.
