2016 Sparkling Wine Marchese Antinori Tenuta Montenisa Donna Cora Satén Franciacorta Brut
The Antinori family has been dedicated to wine production for over six hundredyears. Since then, in 1385, Giovanni di Piero Antinori became a member of the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri. Throughout its long history, spanning 26 generations, the family has always managed this activity directly, making innovative and sometimes brave choices, but always maintaining an unchanged respect for tradition and territory.
Tenuta Montenisa is located in the heart of Franciacorta, just outside the village of Calino, the jewel in the crown of this sweet part of Italy, where ancient palaces, convents, abbeys and churches scattered across the green hills and swarthy valleys have witnessed centuries of history. Some say that "Franciacorta" originates from "Petite France", the affectionate name given to it by Charlemagne.
