La Braccesca (Antinori)
Achelo reflects the extremely favorable conditions of the vintage for the Syrah grapes. It is a wine with an intense purple color whose nose shows the typical varietal notes of white fruit fused with pepper and tobacco. On the palate it is full and supple, and the flavors once again recall white peaches along with plums and blackberries; these, together with the balanced acidity, tobacco, and spices, accompany the entire flavor flow.

Vinification The Syrah from the vineyard plots utilized for Achelo began to be harvested from mid-September onwards. After the destemming and pressing, the fermentation on the skins commenced, first at low temperatures (50°Fahrenheit – 10° centigrade) in order to extract the typical varietal aromas and then continued at temperatures which never exceeded 82° Fahrenheit (28° centigrade) in order to maintain the aromas and the integrity of the fruit.
Aging After approximately ten days, 70% of the wine went into oak, where it went through a complete malolactic fermentation and began the aging process. The remaining 30% aged in stainless steel.
Alcohol 13.00% by volume
