Santa Pia is produced from a 15-hectare (37 acres) vineyard in an area called Santa Pia, located on the ridges just below the town of Montepulciano. This particular area has sandy loamy soils rich in rocky deposits that allow the Antinori’s to create an elegant yet traditional expression of the Sangiovese grape that reflects the characteristics of this historic winemaking area. The first vintage to be produced was 2001.
The 2016 Santa Pia shows an intense ruby red color. The nose is dominated by fragrant notes of ripe cherries and red berry fruit, which well balance the hints of vanilla and spices which are accompanied by a highly pleasurable crispness. The palate is savory, ample and enveloping, and endowed with silky and vibrant tannins and a long and persistent finish and aftertaste.
