This is a rich, modern Chianti that marries beautifully ripe cherry fruit with well-judged smoky oak notes. The opulence on the palate is tempered by savoury notes of clove and a firm structure supporting the plump fruit.
The Antinori family have 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 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 as well as their Tuscan heartland.
