The wine is ruby red in color with aromas of ripe red fruit and well amalgamated notes of vanilla and coffee. The palate enjoys a notable support from the acidity, which maintains a pleasurable freshness and persistence of flavor along with soft and sweet tannins which guarantee excellent drinkability.

Our notes

A Tuscan classic at an excellent price. Peppoli is an excellent introduction to Chianti Classico. Lamb, antipasti and a variety of red meat dishes will suit and don't forget wild boar ragu with pappardelle, a local speciality.

Prices seem to range from $45 down to around $28, so I’m going somewhere in the middle. Importer: Negociants Cherry, dried herbs, new leather. Medium-bodied, savoury and slightly earthy, good flavour, bright line of acidity, tannin a bit too dry and grippy though, mainly on the finish, though that would be mitigated by the right food, which is as it should be. Pretty good.

Producers notes

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 product1ion, 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.
