PRODUCER FOCUS - Marchesi Antinori
Welcome to another and exceptional episode of Producer Focus...
Tignanello, Cervaro della Sala, Solaia; are some of the most famous wines in the World. All these wines share a couple of things in common, firstly they are all from Italy, and secondly, they are all produced by the Antinori family.
We have been working hard over the last few years to source wines from Antinori, and I'm delighted to say that we are now in the position to offer wines from the estate to you!
We currently have three wines in stock; we managed to grab a couple of cases of their Tignanello 2017 and a bit more of two excellent whites; Bramito 2019 and Tormaresca Pietrabianca 2018.
Keep an eye out for...
Next week, we will be running a limited allocation on the latest pre-releases from the winery namely, Tignanello 2018 & Cervaro Della Sala 2019. If you are interested in reserving these wines and do not currently receive our limited allocation emails, let us know, and we'll add you to the list.
More on the Estate...
The Antinori family has been producing wine in Tuscany for six centuries and exporting it for four – that’s 26 generations of uninterrupted family ownership, making them the 10th oldest company in the world still in the hands of the same family.
They moved to Florence in the early 13th century and remain central figures in the fabric of the city. Piazza Antinori is the square in the historic centre where Marchese Piero Antinori still lives. The purchase of the Tignanello estate in 1850 marked the beginning of a remarkable period of expansion, which shows no signs of abating. Through the judicious acquisition of vineyards and an uncanny knack for developing iconic wines, Antinori has become Tuscany’s – arguably Italy’s – preeminent wine producer, establishing an important presence in Piedmont, Umbria, Puglia and Lombardy.
Marchese Piero Antinori sums up the company’s outlook thus: “Ancient roots play an important role in our philosophy, but they have never held back our spirit of innovation.” Today, the company president is Albiera Antinori (Piero’s eldest daughter), while the Marchese retains the title of honorary president. Renzo Cotarella, creator of Cervaro della Sala, is the CEO and chief winemaker.
