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, Toscana IGT, 2020

This wine, from the renowned Antinori estate, is a blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc. With the majority of the blend being Sangiovese, the wine carries the typical characteristics of this grape, which is a staple in the region of Tuscany, Italy.

The production of this wine is a careful process that starts with the selection of the best grapes from the vineyard. The grapes are then fermented separately in a combination of stainless steel tanks and oak barrels. The blend is then aged in French and Hungarian oak barrels for 14 months, followed by a further 12 months in the bottle. This meticulous process results in a wine with a distinctive character and complexity.

The taste profile of this Antinori Toscana IGT 2020 is one to be savored. The Sangiovese imparts flavors of ripe red fruits and spices, while the Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc add layers of dark fruits and a hint of tobacco. The palate is full-bodied with a well-balanced structure, supported by the 14% alcohol level. The finish is long and satisfying, reflecting the high-quality grapes and the skillful winemaking process.

The high scores from Robert Parker (95 points), James Suckling (97 points), and Wine Spectator (94 points) are a testament to the quality and consistency of Antinori's wines. The Antinori estate has a rich history dating back to 1385 and is one of the biggest wine companies in Italy. This wine is a true representation of the terroir of Tuscany and the centuries-old winemaking tradition of the Antinori family.
