Vinsanto production in Tuscany and in the Chianti Classico region dates back to the Middle Ages. Observing traditional methods and strict production regulations, Vinsanto Tenute Marchese Antinori is produced from selected Trebbiano and Malvasia grapes that are left to dry in a completely natural process requiring time and patience. The resulting wine is intense and pleasing for its generous aromas and soft palate.
Climate trends in 2015 were perfectly normal and each season reflected Chianti Classico’s typical weather patterns. A cold, rather dry winter preceded springtime that saw wet weather in the months of March and April and dry conditions in May and June; throughout this period temperatures were normal and guaranteed a perfect growing season and ideal phases of flowering and fruit set. Summer was hot with a heat wave in July but with excellent temperature fluctuations between day and night that ensured even cluster growth and the absence of stress in the vineyards. Hot weather continued through the month of August with scattered showers that favored an excellent start to ripening phases. Trebbiano and Malvasia clusters were harvested between September 10th and 15th.
