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.
Harvested grapes were destemmed and delicately pressed. The must was chilled to a temperature of 10 °C (50 °F) to favor a natural settling of the impurities. After 48 hours, the must was transferred to stainless steel tanks where alcoholic fermentation took place at a temperature that did not exceed 18 °C (64 °F). The wine was aged in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 10 °C (50 °F). Small batch blending just before bottling preserved Villa Antinori Bianco’s characteristic freshness and enhance distinctive aromatic qualities. Bottling began mid-January 2021.
Villa Antinori Bianco is straw yellow in color with greenish hues. On the nose it is refined, elegant, fruity and floral with notes of banana, pears, pineapples, and orange blossoms. The palate is flavorful with a fresh mineral finish.
