Antieri is made from a rare indigenous grape, recently revitalized, called Susumaniello. Grapes are picked up by hands and gently laid down into little airy crates followed by a further selection on a modern sorting table. Aged for 12 months in medium-toasted French oak and then 8 months in the bottle, it gives a young wine full of finesse and mind-blowing aromas.
Full-bodied and velvety, this wine with intense tannins extends your palate, leaving an extremely pleasant long finish. It persistently sits in your mouth, confirming an undisputed, captivating personality with strong accents of ripened berries and plums.
