Antinori Peppoli Chianti Classico Case of 6 Bottles 2011
Estate-grown Chianti Classico DOCG90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and SyrahIntense red fruit aromas with light hints of vanilla and coffee. A well-structured wine with smooth, sweet tannins of nice length with fruity flavours. This wine is made to be enjoyed fairly young, while the fruit is at its fullest expression.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
I'm not a big fan of chianti, this one was okay. Sharp, cherry flavor. I guess if you like chianti it's a decent try.
Full flavoured. Medium bodied. Not heavy in tannins. Easy drinking chianti.
Three and a half glasses
Colore molto intenso con riflessi violacei e granati intensità olfattiva elevata con note fruttate corposo equilibrato di media astringenza ricco di aroma elevata e persistente
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 Peppoli Chianti Classico Case of 6 Bottles
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.
The Antinori family of Florence, one of the world's oldest and most distinguished wine producers, has lived in Tuscany since the 14th century and celebrated its 625th anniversary as wine makers in 2010. The current company president, Marchese Piero Antinori, believes in the tradition that the primary role of wine is to accompany food and enhance the dining experience. In Florence, the Antinori family has led a "Renaissance" in Italian wine making by combining long traditions, a love of authenticity and a dynamic innovative spirit. James Suckling scored it 90 points saying "There's a pretty blueberry and chocolate character on the nose and palate here. It's full-bodied with juicy and bright fruit plus hints of cocoa. Drink now."
Antinori Peppoli Chianti Classico. Dark and clear black cherry red, with intense red fruit aroma, especially red currants and raspberries, are amplified by light hints of vanilla and coffee sensations. This full bodied wine is pleasantly lingering with soft, dry dusty tannins. It should be drunk while still young for full expression of the fruit. A blend of 90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and Syrah.
Dunkles Purpur; intensive Aromen von Kirschen, reifer schwarzer Frucht, etwas Schokolade und Vanille. Im Gaumen sehr geschmeidig, mit der typischen Sangiovese-Saftigkeit. Der Wein hat Biss und Schmelz zugleich. Ein Chianti classico, der die Vermählung von modernem und klassischem Winemaking sehr gut zeigt.
The vineyards are planted in a particularly favorable valley on soils rich in mineral elements, ideal for the cultivation of a Sangiovese full of vitality and fruit. The Peppoli estate, located in the heart of Chianti Classico, consists of 100 total hectares, fifty of which are planted to vines.
A sophisticated Chianti Classico with fine ripeness, this shows juicy Morello cherry flavors along with dark notes of roast coffee, mace and nutmeg. Its firm black tannins last; their fruity, wood-ear-mushroom savor suggests decanting it with a grilled steak.
The wine is ruby red in color with aromas of ripe red fruit and well amalgamated notes of vanilla and coffee.
