Antinori Winery

View all from Antinori Winery
The 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.

Great table wine

"Easy to drink right at opening. Light fruity flavor pretty versatile for a meal or just casual glass. Nice value at under $10"

Read about this in the paper

"We read about this in the Sunday paper and decided to give it a try. Based on the price and the reviews, we ordered a case. It is a perfect everyday wine to go with pizza, pasta, or Italian food. Plan to get another case soon."

A Great Value

"Reminds me of the old fashioned Chianti I grew up with that seems to be less and less available. Great with pasta and other similar dishes but just as nice as a sipping wine."

My Favorite Pizza Wine

"We have been drinking Santa Cristina for several years and it has become our standard Italian red table/pizza wine. We keep trying to spend a little more and get a a better sangiovese product but the better chiantis cost about double, like Monsanto Chianti Classico, and the Brunellos are out of sight -- so we stay with the Santa Cristina. If we need a pizza wine alternative or change of pace we choose the Thorn-Clarke Terra Barossa. It costs a bit more for the same quality but it has a screw-top on a 1 liter bottle. Doesn't that sound exquisitely pizza friendly?"
