  • Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva is ruby red in colour. On the nose, intense notes of ripe red fruit, cherries, currants, and raspberries lead over to delicate floral scents of dog rose, violets, and lavender. Its bouquet is completed by typical sanguine sensations and pleasant spicy hints of tobacco, cinnamon, and cloves with a sweet note of milk chocolate. Its palate is well-balanced with lively, silky tannins that impart freshness and sustain a savoury, persistent finish.
  • The Antinori family has been producing wine in Tuscany for six centuries and exporting it for four. The purchase of the Tignanello estate in 1900 marked the beginning of a remarkable period of expansion that showed no signs of abating. Through the judicious acquisition of vineyards and an uncanny knack for developing iconic wines, Antinori has become Tuscany’s—arguably Italy’s—pre-eminent wine producer, with an important presence in Piedmont, Lombardy, Umbria, and Puglia, as well as their Tuscan heartland.

The Antinori family have been producing wine in Tuscany for six centuries and exporting it for four; that’s twenty-six generations of uninterrupted family ownership. The first recorded mention of the family dates back to 1188, when they worked in the silk trade. They moved to Florence in the early thirteenth century and remain central figures in the city's fabric; Piazza Antinori is the square in the historical centre where their offices are located. Winemaking was added to the family’s activities in 1385, and during the sixteenth century, the wines spread, along with Antinori’s reputation, to France, Flanders, Spain and North Africa. The purchase of the Tignanello estate in 1900 marked the beginning of a remarkable period of expansion, which shows no signs of abating. Through judicious acquisition of vineyards and an uncanny knack for developing iconic wines, Antinori has become Tuscany’s – arguably Italy’s – pre-eminent wine producer, with an important presence in Piedmont, Lombardy, Umbria and Puglia. Marchese Piero Antinori sums up the company’s outlook thus: “Ancient roots play an important role in our philosophy, but they have never held back our spirit of innovation.”

At the same time, Villa Antinori and the Vin Santo are blends of selected lots from several of the family’s vineyards, including the flagship Tenuta Tignanello site.
