Grapes for Vinsanto were harvested exclusively from Antinori estate vineyards in the Chianti Classico region. Clusters were carefully selected in the vineyard and placed into small crates; in the cellar they were laid out manually on bamboo mats in the drying room at the Tignanello estate or hung in suspension in special movable frames at the Pèppoli estate. The grapes were left to desiccate until the end of December then were gently pressed to preserve their aromatic and organoleptic qualities. The must was introduced into small casks called caratelli, coopered with different types of wood in sizes varying from 50 to 200 liters and stored in “vinsantaia”, rooms exposed to seasonal temperature fluctuations. Alcoholic fermentation is a lengthy and slow process that primarily occurs in the spring and fall, while extreme temperatures in summer and winter cause fermentation to become dormant. Once the alcohol content is elevated enough, the fermentation process naturally comes to a halt. Vinsanto Marchese Antinori was left to age in the caratelli for about 3 years then blended and bottled.
