''In Tuscany, the Antinori family has led a “Renaissance” in Italian wine making by combining long traditions, a love of authenticity and a dynamic innovative spirit.'' Antonio Galloni
Hi Folks, Superstar Tuscan winery Marchesi Antinori with a history going back over 600 years are an institution in Italian wine circle's with an unshakable love affair with Sangiovese deep in their hearts. Although it hasn't quite been 600 years for us, this is amazingly our first time showcasing Marchesi Antinori! Now given the quality wines produced by this esteemed estate, we've almost had a smorgasbord to choose from, and after much deliberations we realised it would be a disservice to this winery's legacy to focus on just one wine, instead we're going to shine a spotlight on three of their classical Reds from historical Tuscan appellations at a special newsletter price!
Marchesi Antinori La Braccesca Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2018
''Highlighted by key notes of cherry and blackberry, as well as hints of chocolate. Some toasted oak. Medium body, polished tannins and a succulent, flavourful finish. Really well done.'' 93 Points, James Suckling
Marchesi Antinori Santa Cristina Toscana Rosso 2019
''Ruby red. Look for notes of crisp red and dark fruits on the flavour profile. Alongside hints of spice, delivered in a juicy medium bodied style.'' Falstaff Wine Guide
Marchesi Antinori La Braccesca Rosso di Montepulciano 2020 ''Bright shimmering ruby red. Scents of wild strawberries, blackberries and fresh cherries. Fruit-driven, juicy and fresh, glides smoothly through the palate.'' Falstaff Wine Guide
Although most famously known internationally as the original makers of the Super Tuscan ''Tignanello'' the Antinori wine family can trace their history remarkably all the way back to 1385. Since then, 26 generations of the family have continued an incredible tradition becoming the most influential name in Italian wine. With six centuries of uninterrupted family ownership behind them, they're a winery powering forward into the future with more stories to tell and wines to be enjoyed.
