"La Braccesca, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano" - graceful, elegant and full wine Antinori manufactured since 1990. Vintage 2007 is one of the best in recent years due to the good weather season. Warm and mild winter has meant that all the physiological cycles of plants (up to harvest) occurred ahead of schedule for two weeks. Dry and warm, but not hot summer allowed the grapes to reach optimum ripeness, so in 2007 the wine has a high concentration of color, aroma and structural richness. After harvesting, the grapes were crushed desteblirovan and to maintain the integrity of the fruit and flavor. After alcoholic fermentation of about 18 days at a temperature not exceeding 28 ° C, the wine was moved in oak barrels of various sizes, which took place malolactic fermentation and subsequent aging for 14 months. After bottling, the wine matured even 12 months.
