A Chianti Classico that shows dark plums, raspberries and hints of crushed cherries. Medium body, ripe tannins and a crisp finish. Drink now.

"90 Sangiovese, 10 Merlot and Syrah. Ruby red in color with purple highlights, the wine shows intensely fruity notes of cherries and red currants on the nose which fuse very well with the typical sensations of violets which characterize Chianti Classico. Very delicate and quite well integrated the smoky sensations created by the oak aging. The palate is savory with a tasty vein of acidity together with silky and polished tannins. " ~ Winery notes

Antinori Winery

View all from Antinori Winery
Antinori WineryThe Antinori family has been involved in the production of wine for over six centuries, ever since, in 1385, Giovanni di Piero Antinori entered as a member, the "Arte Fiorentina", the Winemakers' Guild of the city of Florence. During this entire long period, thorough twenty six generations, the family has always directly managed this work with courageous and, at times, innovative decisions, but always maintaining, unaltered, a fundamental respect for tradition and for the territory in which they have operated.

Today the firm is run by Marquis Piero Antinori with the support of his three daugthers, Albiera, Allegra, and Alessia, directly involved in the work of the house. Tradition, passion, and intuition have been the three driving principles which have led the Marquis Antinori firm to become a leader in Italian wine.

Each and every vintage, each and every separate area, each and every idea which is to be put into practice is a new beginning, a new search for higher quality standards. As Marquis Piero Antinori likes to repreat: "ancient roots play an important role in our work. But have never been a limit to our innovative spirit". The estates in Tuscany and Umbria, the historic patrimony of the family, have been joined, over time, by investments in other territories with an important potential for high level wine both in Italy and abroad, in places where it would be possible to begin working for a larger prestige and wider awareness of the family's ability to produce outstanding wine.
