      “Pèppoli” Chianti Classico DOCG 2018

    • "Marchese Antinori" Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2016

      “Marchese Antinori” Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2016

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

      "Dark glowing ruby red. In the nose after fine wood spice, red berry fruit, also smoky, in the reverberation after pitch, open-hearted. On the palate it is still young and gripping, also shows clear cherry fruit with a spicy touch, powerful, juicy in the final." Falstaff

      "Opulent sweet red fruits with lots of appealing toasty vanilla oak; concentrated and silky with a sappy, juicy texture." Decanter

      "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

      "Alluring aromas of cranberry, pomegranate and oak-driven spice shape the nose. The aromas follow through to the elegant, savory palate along with vanilla, star anise and a hint of coconut while bright acidity and supple tannins provide support and finesse." Wine Enthusiast

      "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

      Antinori's classic presents itself at its best in the dream year 2016, with a bouquet full of character that 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 delicacy, long. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sangiovese in its purest form: nose dominated by raspberry and violet aromas; the attack is harmonious, has a cut and ends multi-faceted on notes of leather, wood and of course lots, lots of fruit. Reliable also in this vintage." Vinum

      "Dark glowing ruby. In the nose at first somewhat reserved, shows with a little air notes of cinnamon, gingerbread, ripe Amarena cherries. On the palate densely woven tannin with a polished touch, beautiful fruit core, balanced, flows elegantly along." Falstaff

      "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

      "Badia a Passignano's 65 hectares sit at 300 metres above sea level on limestone rich clay in the area of San Casciano Val di Pesa. A selection of the best bunches of Sangiovese, the 2016 Gran Selezione is gorgeous, yet discreet rather than flashy. It is also immediately appealing with lovely clarity of red cherry and violets. Savoury hints of iron and stone emerge on the palate. This boasts silky sophisticated tannins, a tactile powdery texture, beautifully integrated oak and vibrant acidity. A elegantly balanced package." Decanter

      "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 2017

      “Tignanello” Toscana IGT 2017

      Since 1971, the region of Tuscany has stood not only for art, architecture, landscape and unforgettable cuisine, but also for terrific IGT wines of international renown.

      Deep dark ruby. On the nose a cornucopia of spices, blackcurrant, violet and traces of flint. On the palate perfectly precise, with a firm tannin structure and an impressive fruit and freshness. A beautiful red, piquant, salty and very long. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A bit shy in aroma today, this red features plum, black cherry, earth, sanguine and toasty oak flavors. Muscular and dense, firming up on the finish. Well-proportioned and long." Wine Spectator

      "Forward plum and cherry aromas are accompanied by black pepper, clove and the typical floral notes of the Chianti Classico area like orris and violet. Darker on the palate, it displays chocolate notes with a balsamic character - peppermint in depth - and a delicate coconut finish. Full and powerful, it has firm acidity and compact tannins, finding great balance due to its amazing concentration of fruit." Decanter

      "The 2017 Tignanello is dense, exotic and flamboyant. Red berry fruit, cherries in liqueur, blood orange, wild flowers and sweet spice are front and center in this sumptuous, racy Tignanello that is likely to drink beautifully right out of the gate. The Antinori team has done a terrific job with the 2017, a year in which heat and dry weather took with them 30% of the production." Vinous

      "A dense, really pinpointed red with plums and hazelnuts. Full-bodied and very polished with fine, creamy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Shows real finesse for the vintage. Better after 2023, but already a joy to taste." James Suckling

      "The Marchesi Antinori 2017 Tignanello (made with Sangiovese and smaller parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc) is a dark, exuberant and inviting wine. I tasted my sample after a double decanting and was pleased by the profound nature of the wine and the immediate openness of the aromas. There is a symphony of dark fruit with black cherry, plum, spice and sweet tobacco. I am particularly attracted by a distant hint of medicinal or menthol herb that I also discovered in other wines with fruit from the Tignanello estate in 2017. There's a drying mineral note of crushed chalk as well. The heat and dryness of the vintage has added to the aromatic intensity of the wine (yields were reduced by a third), but the mouthfeel is carefully crafted to maintain its softness and smoothness. Fruit comes from a 57-hectare section of the Tenuta Tignanello from a vineyard that is located 390 meters above sea level with Alberese limestone rock and soils of marine origin." Robert Parker

    About the winemakersMarchesi AntinoriTuscany | 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
