About Antinori

‘Experience’ is an appropriate word to describe The Antinori family. They have been producing wines for 26 generations - since 1385. Still family-owned, Marchesi Antonori is one of the most famous Italian wines House, revealing the best of Italy through seven estates in Tuscany, Piedmont, Lombardy and Puglia. And it turns out one country is not enough - exporting their ‘savoir-faire’, they are now established in Napa and Columbia Valleys, Chile, Hungary, Malta and Romania. Always combining tradition and innovation, they are continuously exploring for new regions with wine-making potential. Recognised for their remarkable Tuscan wines, they played a large part in the "Super-Tuscan" revolution of the 1970s, particularly with Tignanello - Antinori’s most famous wine - considered by many as one of world’s great iconic wines.

Appellation: Tuscany

Tuscany (or Toscana) is a large region made up of many significant smaller areas that are known across the world for the level of quality that they produce. Brunello di Montalcino, Bolgheri and Chianti can both be found here as well as the infamous "Super Tuscans".

Grape Blend: Sangiovese | Cab. Sauvignon

A standard super Tuscan blend, usually made from old vines and aged in new oak barrels. This blend is responsible for some of the most expensive, concentrated wines in Italy. The fad of the eighties and nineties for these blends has perhaps subsided, but when properly made the structure of the Cabernet together with the freshness and complexity of the Sangiovese can result in first rate wine.
