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

Deze witte wijn bestaat voor 70 % uit de Trebbiano en Malvasia druif, de resterende 30 % bestaat uit Pinot Blanc en Pinot Gris. Van een wijn van een dergelijk huis moeten we erkennen dat de verwachtingen wat hoger liggen dan bij de gemiddelde supermarktwijn. Helaas constateren we dat hij deze hoge verwachtingen niet echt waar kan maken. Hij is erg droog en zelfs een beetje vervelend zuur om te drinken, het fruit en de balans in de fles is ook erg beschaafd te noemen. Te beschaafd, hij kan ons weinig boeien helaas. 82/100 Supersnobs.nl

Delicious Italian white blend. Fresh aromas of straw, citrus peel, some banana, and salt-spray. Like the citrusy palate, which has shades of banana and a green acidity at the core that is mouth-watering. Great with shellfish, salads, hot weather. Trebbiano, Malvasia, Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco, and Pinot Grigio.

Hellgelb; vielversprechende, exotisch fruchtige Nase mit Noten von Mango, Grapefruit und Eisbonbons. Im Mund recht voll, feinfruchtig und zum Schluss schön süffig. Unkompliziert für jede Gelegenheit.

Winemaker Notes - This wine presents itself to the eye with a straw-golden color. The wine opens with full, complex aromas touched by floral notes and hints of candied fruit. In the mouth the wine is well-balanced, full-bodied, and has a long aromatic finish. It is very smooth and pleasant to drink

70% Trebbiano and Malvasia, 30% Chardonnay toscano, Pinot Bianco and Pinot Grigio. Pale straw-yellow in colour with intense aromas of white flowers on the nose and a fresh, soft and nicely lingering palate. Villa Antinori Website
