The Antinori Legacy 26 Generations. 1 Family. In 1385, Giovanni di Piero Antinori became a member of the Winemakers' Guild in Florence, Italy. More than 600 years later, the Antinori family is still producing exceptional wines. Piero Antinori took the helm of the family business in 1966, and his influence has raised the quality and reputation of Chianti Classico wine. Now he is passing the Antinori Quest for Excellence on to his three daughters, Albiera, Alessia and Allegra. The Antinori's collection displays the many faces of Chianti Classico wines: from traditional to modern, and from deep and complex to fresh and lively. These four wines embody the passion and brilliance that the Antinoris bring to the art of winemaking. Antinori nel Chianti Classico In October of 2012, Antinori opened a state of the art winery in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, a tribute to the symbiotic nature of traditional and contemporary wine production. Antinori nel Chianti Classico honors the history and bright future of the region.

Tasting Notes: Wine Spectator 92 points- This is dark but not brooding, with a burst of ripe black currant and black cherry fruit shaded by licorice, spice and mint. Features grip and a lingering finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Drink now through 2020. 15,000 cases imported. BS.July/2017

Wine Advocate 91 points- The 2015 Bolgheri Rosso Il Bruciato is already on the market and continues to enjoy great success thanks to its compelling quality to price ratio. The 2015 vintage delivers incredibly balanced results thanks to weather patterns that were never too hot or too cold. The wine opens to dark fruit aromas with black cherry, spice and mocha. The tannins are sweet, but the wine finishes with elegant dryness. This is exactly the kind of wine you should buy by the case, so that you always have a bottle handy for spontaneous dinner parties..Monica Larner, April/2017

James Suckling 93 points- Aromas of black currants, black berry and wet earth follow through to a full body, dark and juicy fruit and a long and flavorful finish. Layered and rich with a lovely ripe tannin mouthfeel. Shows the opulence of the outstanding 2015 vintage..August/2017
