Villa Antinori Pinot Bianco

Climate

The 2019 growing season was defined by dry weather in the first half of spring and cool and rainy in the second half. These climatic conditions slowed down the vine’s growth cycle causing a delay in bloom of about 2 weeks compared to seasonal averages. Summer brought hot weather with rainfall that was well distributed throughout the season. During the final weeks of ripening, optimal temperature swings between the day and night allowed the grapes to achieve a perfect balance between acidity and sugar levels and develop an exceptional aromatic profile. Pinot Bianco for Villa Antinori was harvested at the end of September approximately 10 days later than 2018.

Vinification

The harvested grapes were destemmed and gently pressed. The must was cooled down to a temperature of 10° C (50° F) to favor natural clarification. After 48 hours, the clarified must was transferred to temperature controlled stainless steel tanks where alcoholic fermentation occurred at a temperature no higher than 18°C (64° F). The wine was aged in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 10° C (50° F) up until bottling that took place at the end of April 2020.

Villa Antinori

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.
