Each grape variety was harvested separately, destemmed, and delicately crushed. The must was transferred into stainless steel vats where alcoholic fermentation took place at a controlled temperature of 25-28 °C (77-82 °F) to preserve the grape varieties’ characteristic aromas and flavors. Maceration on the skins lasted for 7-10 days and closely monitored cap management techniques focused on enhancing structure and extracting only the supplest tannins. The resulting wine was transferred into large format barrels where malolactic fermentation took place and, starting from the following spring season, began aging for approximately 12 months. The wine was bottled in spring 2022 and was aged for one additional year in the bottle before being released in spring 2023.

The estate’s name comes from the historical farm that once stood there, owned by the Count of Bracci, whose coat of arms appears on the estate’s logo; an arm covered with armor brandishing a sword. Marchesi Antinori acquired the estate in 1990. The property extends over an area of 508 hectares (1255 acres) and the vineyards cover an area of 340 hectares (840 acres) divided into two blocks: the first is 366 hectares (904 acres) of which 237 (585 acres) are planted with vineyards and is located on the border between the cities of Montepulciano and Cortona. The other block is 142 hectares (350 acres) of which 103 (254 acres) are planted with vineyards, it extends to Montepulciano encompassing three of the most famous parcels of land known for the production of great red wines: Cervognano, Santa Pia, and Gracciano.
