Peppoli Chianti Classico -Kellerei Antinori 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense aromas of red berries with light hints of vanilla and chocolate, which heighten the sensations of the fruit. The wine has great body, with soft and sweet tannins. Pèppoli has a pleasant long finish with a lingering after-taste. This wine was created to be enjoyed while it is young and at the height of its expression of its fruity aromas.

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

Light peppery nose; deep purple color; light bodied with a very light but long finish. Doesn't hold up against other Classicos like Ruffino.

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."

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. Drink now. 50,000 cases made. -JS Full ruby-red. Pungent, bright aromas of redcurrant, licorice, cedar and herbs. Supple, fruit-driven and easygoing, with juicy acidity giving a firm edge to the raspberry and red cherry flavors. Not especially long but suave and tasty. The wines of Antinori, virtually always well made, are the safest of bets when eating out in restaurants due to their high quality and usually very reasonable prices.
