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

Wine Tasting Notes65% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot BlancBatar reaches its full maturity about 42 months, after harvest. Before maturity, just like its Cousins of Burgundy, the wine may tend to shut down and to appear tight at tasting. Therefore, we strongly advise you not to consume it before it has reached maturity, about 3 and a half to 4 years after harvest, in order to enjoy it at its maximum potential. The maturity plateau is 4 to 12 years after harvest.

Yellow-gold color. Sexy aromas of ripe apricot pear honey and nutty oak show a distinctly exotic side. Then supersweet and concentrated on the palate showing more sheer sweetness and power than any particular flavor component. Almost sugary on the finish but long and quite unevolved. Today this gives the impression of being a wine with too much of everything: I d lay it down for a decade. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The 2005 Cotes de Tablas is better than the 2004.
