      “Marchese Antinori” Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG 2018

      Since the 2011 vintage, the Riserva Marchese Antinori has been produced one hundred percent from grapes from Tenuta Tignanello. This reduced the production volume and set in motion a further leap in quality. Sparkling ruby, dark wild cherries, graphite, violets and spices in the bouquet. Flowing and round on the palate, very juicy, the French oak adds volume and richness. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dark ruby. After rich cherries, precious woods and black pepper in the nose, reminiscent of blackberry jelly in the finish, some rose petal, fine-smelling. Presents itself balanced and with a nice fan on the palate, crisp acidity supports the clear fruit, with a salty core, punchy finish." Falstaff

      "This is very lively and energetic with fine tannins and a long, focused finish. Aromatic and bright with berries, plums and flowers. Medium body. with savory acidity and a long finish." James Suckling

      "This wine is made exclusively with fruit from the gorgeous Tenuta Tignanello in San Casciano Val di Pesa (home to its namesake wine Tignanello, and Solaia) and sees mostly Sangiovese blended with a smaller part Cabernet Sauvignon and other complementary grapes. The Marchesi Antinori 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori vaunts a smooth and silky personality with ample berry definition and brightness. The previous 2017 vintage revealed more black and purple fruits because of the scorching hot and dry summer that year, but this wine from the cooler 2018 growing season focuses on red raspberry and cherry instead. That fruit is framed by light spice (from Hungarian and French oak) and licorice." Robert Parker

    • "Tignanello" Toscana IGT 2017

      “Tignanello” Toscana IGT 2017

      Since 1971, the region of Tuscany has been synonymous not only with art, architecture, landscape and unforgettable cuisine, but also with terrific IGT wines of international stature.

      Deep dark ruby. On the nose, a cornucopia of spices, blackcurrant, violets and traces of flint. Impeccably precise on the palate, with a firm tannic structure and impressive fruit and freshness. A beautiful red, spicy, salty and very long. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Shiny, rich ruby with a slight violet shimmer. Opens with fine spicy notes, some rosemary, then dried tomatoes, lots of blackberry. Gripping, rich tannin, savoury and grippy, lots of layers, salty and long on the final, great storage potential." Falstaff

      "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

    • "Tignanello" Toscana IGT 2018

      “Tignanello” Toscana IGT 2018

      Intense ruby red. Deep, complex nose of ripe red berries like sour cherry, Amarena cherry and redcurrant, in the background a delicate mint and vanilla note and spicy hints of white pepper and myrtle. In the mouth, very straightforward and precise, juicy, fresh and with silky smooth fruit and well-dosed tannin, in the further course of captivating elegance, finesse and with wonderful length. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This is so aromatic with flowers, such as cherry blossoms and roses, together with currants and blackberries. A medium-bodied Tignanello with very fine tannins and depth. Racy and very, very long finish. Pure and refined. Lots of blue fruit. Tight at the end, but showing a sophisticated and reserved style. Very refined. Drinkable now, but will age nicely." James Suckling

      "The 2018 Tignanello is a wine of breathtaking purity. Impossibly silky and persistent, the 2018 is all class, all the way. In many ways, the 2018 reminds me of the 2004 because of its finesse , but it has an extra degree of nuance that reflects important strides that have been made at the estate in the intervening years. Winemaking today is more gentle, while new oak is also less intrusive. The result is a Tignanello that bristles with class. The purity of the flavors alone is mesmerizing. Bright red-toned berries, mocha, spice, cedar, new leather and licorice are some of the many notes that linger on a finish framed by silky, perfectly ripe tannins." Vinous

      "The 2018 vintage offers a deconstructed Tignanello upon first inspection because you can clearly make out the varietal typicity of the grapes, especially the green spice and white pepper of the two Cabernets, along with aromas of crushed limestone that recall the white rocks carefully placed in the vineyards to protect the rows. The wine's fruit weight is contained and polished, and there are no exaggerations, excesses or loose ends. The results are calculated and exacting, especially if you consider the tannic management (with aging in both new and used Hungarian and French oak for up to 16 months) and the quality of the elegant mouthfeel. With time in the glass, those deconstructed elements converge to create unity and balance. The Tignanello vineyard is 57 hectares and sits at a breezy 390 meters above sea level with alberese and galestro soils. Those elevations proved important for shedding excess humidity at the end of this 2018 growing season." Robert Parker

    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
