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

87 points. On the nose I immediately picked up on something that was slightly green and floral at the same time, almost like cucumber slices and rose petals. There was also a nice white jasmine, goji berry, and exotic tropical fruit tone running through it, which was tempered flawlessly with a firm coastal minerality and a creamy grassiness. The palate is creamy with very light bitter stone edges, supple white peach fuzz, rose petal, and a soft green tinge. This wine is subtle and gentle with a nice balance of creaminess and acidity. There is also a good amount of minerality that almost makes me think of crushed up clamshells. It has really nice weight, and it manages to be rich and refreshing at the same time. This wine is skillfully done and I am quite impressed by how elegant it comes across. The only reason I am not completely in love with this wine is that I think its intensity is a little soft, and I would have liked to get more of an impact from it on the palate, that said, I think this is an excellent buy for the price and I absolutely would call this a wine worth trying.
