      “Marchese Antinori” Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2016

      Since the 2011 vintage, the Riserva Marchese Antinori has been made from 100% Tenuta Tignanello grapes. This led to a drop in production volume and a further leap in quality. Sparkling ruby, on the nose dark wild cherries, graphite, violets and spices. Flowing and round on the palate, the French oak brings additional volume and fullness. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori emerges entirely from Antinori's Tignanello estate. Plump and forward, with juicy dark fruit, the Marchese Antinori is done in a decidedly modern, lush style. Mocha, sweet spice, licorice and black plum meld into the creamy finish." Vinous

      "A layered and very rich Chianti Classico with blackberries, chocolate and hints of coffee. Full body, round tannins and a flavorful finish." James Suckling

      "The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori is Sangiovese enhanced with touches of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Renzo Cotarella and the extended technical team at Marchesi Antinori are working hard on perfecting their tannin management, and the beautiful results are evident across this line of new releases from the classic 2016 vintage. The finish is silky and long, and the tannins are never dry. The fruit is evident and bright with wild cherry, rose and Italian garden herb." Robert Parker

    • "Badia a Passignano" Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2016

      “Badia a Passignano” Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG 2016

      In absolute top form Antinoris Classic presents itself in the dream year 2016. The bouquet full of character combines notes of sour cherries, liquorice and sweet tobacco with elegant floral nuances. On the palate it has a beautiful structure and a perfect balance between alcohol and acidity. Gentle tannins extracted with sensitivity, long. SUPERIORE.DE

      "One of the many highlights in this range, the 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Badia a Passignano is the most refined, elegant wine Antinori has made from their Badia a Passignano property. Medium in body and lithe, but with plenty of the fruit intensity that is typical of this site, the 2016 Badia captures a striking middle ground of richness and finesse that is captivating. Lavender, mint, blue/purplish fruit and licorice are all beautifully delineated. The gradual move towards less concentration in the cellar and larger 300 and 500-liter barrels has paid off handsomely. This is such a gorgeous Chianti Classico." Vinous

      "A lush, round version, featuring milk chocolate hints and cherry, plum, almond and earth flavors. Dense, with dusty tannins. The vibrant acidity keeps all the elements defined on the lingering aftertaste." Wine Spectator

      "Badia a Passignano is one of the last vineyards to mature and one of the first to start, so it always has a very long growing cycle. The spring began with good weather with budbreak coming about ten days early, followed by a cool, early summer and a hot August. The Sangiovese-based 2016 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Badia a Passignano shows some real ripeness on the close with more red and purple fruit rather than black fruit characteristics. This is a very traditional expression of the Tuscan grape and the least international of Marchesi Antinori's offerings. It's the kind of classic Sangiovese that belongs on the table next to a pappardelle with your favorite ragù." Robert Parker

      "This is a wonderful pure sangiovese with wet earth, mushrooms, pine and cedar with black cherries. Full body. Dense and layered with ripe tannins, yet there’s vivid and energetic acidity. It drives to the end and pulls you in. Top stuff." James Suckling

    • "Tignanello" Toscana IGT 2016

      “Tignanello” Toscana IGT 2016

      Since 1971, the Tuscany region has stood not only for art, architecture, landscape and unforgettable cuisine, but also for grandiose IGT wines of international renown. The 2016 edition of the first so-called Supertuscan presents itself with a mature, complex bouquet and a balsamic, smoky taste. Elegant and balanced, structured and full-bodied, fruity-spicy and long lasting. A great wine! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Wonderful aromas of pine needles, rosemary, fresh mushrooms, bark and dark fruit. Full body. Very tight and tannic backbone. Racy and driven. Undertones of orange peel and wet earth. Even licorice and mint. Great finish." James Suckling

      "2016 Tignanello is a rock-solid wine and a stunning beauty. The wine offers an impeccable level of precision and laser-focus delivery of fruits, spices, tilled earth, espresso beans and Mediterranean herbs. The vines are now 15 to 20 years old. Compared to the 2015 vintage that ultimately appeared more chewy and succulent, this expression from the iconic 2016 vintage is more vibrant, nervous and jazzed. It shows more savory spice, saltiness and minerality, with a beautifully integrated quality of tannins. This wine is at the top of the list of some of the best Tignanello ever made!" Robert Parker

      "A big, lush style, this red delivers pure aromas and flavors of black currant, cherry, violet, flint, tobacco and baking spices. This is supple, yet backed by a firm, dense matrix of tannins, so all the components are there, but this needs time to integrate. Lovely sweet, ripe finish." Wine Spectator

      "The 2016 Tignanello is flat out stunning. Dark, dense and resonant, the 2016 is a wonderfully complete wine that will provide readers with decades of pure drinking pleasure. The 2016 is especially dark and brooding, and yet the tannins are incredibly polished to the point of being perceptible. In the glass, the 2016 is complete and regal, perhaps because of the super-classic blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. The pedigree of the vintage comes through in the wine's extraordinary balance and total sense of finesse. I don't think there is another wine anywhere in the world made entirely from estate fruit that can match Tignanello for quality, consistency and value within its peer group of top-flight reds."

    About the winemakers
    Marchesi Antinori
    Tuscany | Chianti
    Marchesi Antinori

    Books with several hundred pages have been written about the Antinori family. It is therefore not easy to write a short form.

    The Marchesi Antinori have been in the wine business for 27 generations or almost 640 years. It is the oldest family winery in Italy, the family has been inseparably linked to Tuscany and the city of Florence for 800 years. Since 1385 Giovanni di Piero Antinori started with silk, wool, banking and wine, the incomparable success story has been written.

    Marchese Piero Antinori was the engine of the last decades. With his motto "Good wine needs an idea and a lot of passion" he was able to convince well-known comrades-in-arms. Names such as Giacomo Tacchis, Emile Peynaud and Renzo Cotarella stand for numerous wine projects that have transformed and modernised Italy's wine world.

    Especially the "invention of the Supertuscans" with Solaia and Tignanello, but also the rise of unknown regions are among the successes of the Antinoris. With the Cervaro della Sala they created the most successful white wine in Italy, with Montenisa an excellent Franciacorta, on La Braccesca they pressed Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and outstanding Syrah. With the Tenuta Pèppoli, Santa Cristina and Badia a Passignano, Antinori proves, along with the Riserva Villa Antinori, that you can also pull out all the stops in the home game of the Chianti Classico. Guado al Tasso is one of the dominant wineries of Bolgheri, Pian delle Vigne is the Brunello di Montalcino, Prunotto the Barolo. With Tormaresca, two top wineries in Apulia trade under the Antinoris flag and in the Fattoria Aldobrandesca, the family is experimenting with Aleatico.

    The Antinori family has long been internationally successful. Be it in Napa Valley in California with the winery Antica Napa Valley, or the joint ventures at Stag's Leap, Col Solare in Washington State, Haras de Pirque in Chile, Meridiana in Malta, Tüzkö in Hungary or Vitis Metamorfosis in Romania: Exciting projects and wines are created everywhere.

    With Cantinetta Antinori and Procacci, Antinoris are also successful in the gastronomy of Florence, Zurich, Vienna, Moscow and Singapore, exporting Tuscan delights on plates and in glasses. Needless to say, most of the Antinori family's wineries offer guided tours, wine tastings and cooking seminars.

    The new "headquarters" is particularly worth a visit. The winery is located in Bargino, near San Casciano in Val di Pesa, a few kilometres south of Florence and close to Badia di Passignano, where the Antinoris were first mentioned in 1179. The elongated building, crouched into the landscape, was designed and realised by the Florentine architect Laura Andreini and is regarded worldwide as a showcase project.

    Marchese Piero Antinori has thus set himself a monument, so to speak, before he handed over the management to his daughters after fifty years in 2017 and retired from everyday business as Honorary President. Anyone who knows him knows, however, that he is not sitting quietly at home in an armchair. And so you can meet him quite relaxed at all kinds of wine events since then. Albiera Antinori now leads the fate of Marchesi Antinori Srl and is supported by her two sisters Allegra and Alessia. Because of the many takeover bids, a trust company was founded which was not allowed to sell shares for 90 years. So the family empire is secured. SUPERIORE.DE
