Food Pairings for Antinori Chianti Classico Peppoli
The nose showed dusty potpourri with fresh crushed cranberry, cinnamon stick, and dark bakers chocolate. On the palate, it was medium bodied with a high level of acidity pushing dry yet intense red fruit and mocha. The finish was long on the palate with some drying tannin and lots of dry red fruit extract. I was a little on the fence with this wine but it opened up nicely after a couple hours open in bottle. Once it started to show a little body on the palate, the dry red fruits and high acidity became more and more tolerable.
Excellent quality/price ratio. Nice acidity with hints of mocha and smashed berry!
Spicy solid Chianti. Fairly priced.
External Reviews for Antinori Chianti Classico Peppoli
From Antinori comes this ripe, forward Chianti Classico. Wine Spectator scored it 90 points saying "Offers floral, ripe black fruit aromas and a delicate chocolate powder note. Full-bodied, with soft, silky tannins and plenty of fruit on the finish. Fruity and very pretty."
The wine is ruby red in color with aromas of ripe red fruit and well amalgamated notes of vanilla and coffee. The palate enjoys a notable support from the acidity, which maintains a pleasurable freshness and persistence of flavor along with soft and sweet tannins which guarantee excellent drinkability.
Intense aromas of juicy red berries, with hints of vanilla and chocolate. Peppoli has great structure and a lively acidity which highlights the fresh fruit flavors characteristic of the 2008 vintage. Elegant and gentle tannins give this wine a long, lingering finish. Enjoy while young, when the fruit is most expressive.
The Antinori family have been producing wine in Tuscany for six centuries, and exporting it for four. The purchase of the Tignanello estate in 1900 marked the beginning of a remarkable period of expansion which shows no signs of abating. Through judicious acquisition of vineyards and an uncanny knack for developing iconic wines, Antinori has become Tuscany’s - arguably Italy’s - pre-eminent wine producer, with an important presence in Piedmont, Lombardy, Umbria and Puglia as well as their Tuscan heartland. Grapes for this wine were carefully selected from the Pèppoli estate in Chianti Classico. The vineyards are planted in a valley on mineral-rich soil, ideal for the cultivation of Sangiovese. The aromas of tart cherries play with those of soft cherries, below there is still a fragrance level of dried herbs and crushed aniseed. On the palate, juicy, fruit, supported by a rather light but elegant structure. This is a Chianti with finesse and verve, and would make a great companion to roast chicken with rosemary and sage.
