Villa Antinori Bianco

Climate

The 2017 vintage was characterized by a mild winter and by a spring which, on the whole, was hot and dry. These very particular conditions determined an early bud break, flowering together with a reduction of production, guaranteeing, however, a crop of excellent quality. The harvest began with the Pinot Grigio during the last ten days of August, notably earlier than in 2016, and continued with the Pinot Blanc, Trebbiano, and Malvasia Toscana. The picking terminated in October with the harvest of the Rhine Riesling.

Vinification

The harvested grapes were destemmed an given a soft pressing. The must was chilled to a temperature or 50° Fahrenheit (10° centigrade) to favor a natural static settling of impurities. After 48 hours it went into temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, where it fermented at a temperature held to a maximum of 64° Fahrenheit (18° centigrade). The wine was then held in stainless steel at a temperature of 50° Fahrenheit to fully maintain freshness and aroma.

Historical Data

Villa Antinori Bianco is one of the historic wines of the Antinori family. It was produced for the first time by Niccolò Antinori in the 1931 vintage and since then the label has remained virtually unchanged, as has the production philosophy, oriented towards a full representation of the wine’s source, the place where its grapes are cultivated.

Tasting Notes

The 2017 Villa Antinori Bianco offers a straw yellow color with greenish highlights. The nose is delicate and elegant with its notes of bananas, pineapples, white flowers, and candied fruit. The palate is balanced and harmonious with good flavor persistence and mineral notes on the finish and aftertaste.

Villa Antinori

Villa Antinori was first of all an idea, a plan that envisioned the winemaking process: research and development on one side and historical heritage on the other. Villa Antinori is an important corner stone as its name is associated with over 100 years of history. At the same time it represents ongoing progress. The one essential principle is continuous research for increasingly higher quality standards. This idea produced two different wines that share a common passion for quality: Villa Antinori Rosso and Villa Antinori Bianco. Villa Antinori was originally produced in 1928 by Marchese Niccolò Antinori as a Chianti Classico that could age and that would improve over time. Soon after, Villa Antinori was found in the most prestigious cellars in embassies, royal houses, important hotels and restaurants. In 1931, Villa Antinori Bianco was made from traditional Trebbiano grapes. In the 1980’s a small percentage of Chardonnay was added in order to give the wine better structure.
