The Antinori family has been making wine for over six hundred years, since Giovanni di Piero Antinori became part of the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri in 1385. Throughout its long history, spanning 26 generations, the family has always personally managed the business making innovative, sometimes courageous choices, always with unwavering respect for tradition and the land. Today Marchese Piero Antinori is director of the company, assisted by his three daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, who are personally involved in the business. The qualities of tradition, passion and instinct have made Antinori one of the leading Italian producers of fine quality wines. Every vintage, every terroir, every idea is a new beginning, a new quest to raise our quality margins. As Marchese Piero loves to repeat: “ancient roots play an important role in our philosophy, but they have never held back our spirit of innovation”. As well as the family's traditional heritage of estates in Tuscany and Umbria, investments have been made over time in other areas highly suited to quality wine production, in Italy and abroad, in a quest to promote new terroirs, rich in winegrowing potential. Antinori continually experiment with their vineyards and cellars, with selections of native and international clones, growing methods, vineyard altitudes, fermentation methods and temperatures, traditional and modern vinification techniques, types of wood, size and age of barrels, and various bottle-ageing periods. Piero Antinori says: “We have shown over the years that it is possible to produce internationally-acclaimed fine stylish, elegant wines in Tuscany and Umbria while maintaining their original character”. Looking to the future, Antinori explains: “There are many books in our library but they are never enough for us. Our mission is not yet complete: we are driven to express the vast potential of our vineyards and reconcile all that is new and undiscovered with Tuscany's traditional, cultural, agricultural, artistic and literary heritage. These things represent the identity of Antinori, and one of our greatest strengths is that we are in Tuscany – our essential ‘Tuscan-ness', if you will”. Read less

Dried cranberry and cedar chips on the nose. Well browned and aged, with a smooth entry, which builds with subtle barnyard flavors and soft woodsy notes. Finishes on moss and iodine notes.

60% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 5% Syrah.This particular wine was introduced in 1928 by Niccolò, Piero Antinori's father, as the first Chianti produced specifically to improve with age. Taninos macios.

Inky purple wine thats a little thinner than you expect. Attractive bouquet of blackberrys, chocolate and a little oak and cherry. Soft palate, the wine is medium bodied and well balanced with a unique and opulent finish. A very attractive wine but a Solaia? Suprising Solaia, certainly not the normal quality. (SN - 11/07)

An off-dry Riesling that is grown in red slate soils and aged in traditional casks called fuder, which are very large and made of old oak. Full of flowers and pink grapefruit, this is rich, deeply textured, and aromatic. It is fermented with indigenous yeasts only - a rare and impressive feat!

( 100) Deep saturated ruby-violet. Intensely aromatic even perfumed on the nose with aromas of kirsch superripe blackberry molten chocolate rose oil and violet. Concentrated fat and unctuous showing sweet flavors of raspberry and blackberry confit smoked bacon molasses fruitcake and candied orange peel. Finishes with excellent lift and defining acidity for a wine of such ripeness and power. 93 points Stephen Tanzers IWC.

An off-dry Riesling that comes from red, slate soils and aged in large traditional oak (old) casks called fuder. Full of flowers and pink grapefruit. A rich, deeply textured and aromatic style that's fermented with indigenous yeasts. Hey, that may not sound impressive but believe us when we tell you it is!
