Villa Antinori

In 1928, Niccolò Antinori embarked on a journey to create a wine that could encapsulate the unique identity of Chianti Classico and Tuscany. The result was "Villa Antinori", a wine named after the family's villa, a symbol of their heritage and dedication to winemaking. Niccolò Antinori's vision was to promote the Antinori name, then relatively unknown, through a wine that embodied their commitment to excellence and tradition. The name "Villa Antinori" was chosen to represent the family's deep-rooted connection to the land and their passion for viticulture. Each bottle of Villa Antinori is a testament to the Antinori family's history and their unwavering dedication to the art of winemaking. It offers a personal interpretation of Chianti Classico and Tuscany's unique identity, capturing the essence of the region in a harmonious blend of tradition and innovation.

Antinori, Solaia, 2019

A product of the esteemed Marchesi Antinori, Solaia holds a reputation of quality and prestige. The vineyard resides in the heart of the Chianti Classico region within the Tignanello estate, an area celebrated for its exceptional vine-growing conditions.

The 2019 Solaia is a carefully blended combination of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, and Cabernet Franc. This blend is precisely selected to bring balance in flavor, aroma, and structure, distinguishing Solaia among Italian wines. The production process is meticulous, starting with fermentation in stainless steel tanks and followed by aging in oak barrels to enhance the wine's complexity and depth.

Rich and intense flavors characterize the Solaia 2019. The palate reveals dark fruits, including blackcurrant and blackberry, coupled with notes of spices and chocolate. A hint of vanilla, a result of oak aging, adds to the wine's complexity. Celebrated for its excellent structure and balance, the wine concludes with a long, elegant finish.

The 2019 Solaia possesses remarkable aging potential, with the quality expected to improve over the years. Anticipation for its release extends to wine enthusiasts and collectors globally, who admire its consistent excellence and the craftsmanship of its production.

Accolades and high ratings from wine critics affirm Solaia's status as one of Italy's premier wines. The 2019 vintage has received particular praise for its elegance, complexity, and depth.
