Marchesi Antinori Vinsanto del Chianti Classico 2017 375ml

While 2017 threw rollercoaster weather at the Antinori family estates in Chianti Classico, this Vinsanto drinks like... electric silk.

About Marchese Antinori Tenuta Tignanello

The Antinori family’s Tenuta Tignanello is a gently hilly property located between that the family has owned since the 1800s. This... 321-acre Tuscan estate gets its name — Tignanello — from its most famous vineyard, but its vines grow the grapes for multiple wines. When Piero Antinori was searching to add his own voice to the Super-Tuscan revolution in the late 1960s, he turned to Giacomo Tachis, the consulting winemaker behind Sangiovese, as well as Ornellaia. Piero wanted to make wines that reflected his family’s Tuscan heritage, and in 1971, Tignanello, a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet, and Cabernet Franc, was born. Sporting marly, limestone-rich soils that show remnants of the Pliocene Period when the region was covered in an ocean, Tenuta Tignanello enjoys sunny days, cool nights, and a gentle breeze, ideal conditions for wines that sing with a true Tuscan voice. This estate is home to three of Antinori's  crown jewels: Solaia, Tignanello, and Chianti Classico Riserva.

A blend of Malvasia and Sangiovese, Fontodi’s Vin Santo gives a nice balance among its elements — silky tannins, fresh acidity, juicy fruits, salty minerals, and lingering sweetness.

About GAJA

Though the Gaja estate was founded in 1859 by Angelo’s great-grandfather, Angelo started shaking things up in 1961 when he assumed control of the family’s... winery. Angelo started small, but by 1967, Angelo had gained the confidence to make larger changes, beginning with the bottling of cru Barbaresco Sorì San Lorenzo, while Sorì Tildìn followed in 1970 and Costa Russi in 1978. As radical as some of Angelo’s innovations seemed, they helped to bring his wines, as well as Piemonte wines, to the notice of the international market. Today, the Gaja estate spans about 250 acres in Piemonte, with holdings located in Barbaresco and Barolo. Angelo began his transition to retirement in 2004, and winemaking duties now rest in the hands of his daughter, Gaia, who has been making bold moves of her own, dropping the Barbera component in the cru Barbaresco and Barolo bottlings, and moving towards more traditional winemaking protocol.

About Royal Tokaji Wine Company

The Royal Tokaji Wine Company is both rather new and very old. Founded only in 1990, Royal Tokaji came about when noted wine writer Hugh... Johnson recognized that, following the fall of the Soviet Empire, Hungary’s wineries were ripe for a resurgence. Hugh joined with local winemaker Istvan Szepsy, a bunch of local winegrowers, and a group of investors to form Royal Tojaji, and history was both made and reborn. The Tokaji region in Hungary has centuries of wine history, and it lays claim to being the birthplace of the world’s first botrytized sweet wine (probably in the early 17th century, but no one knows the exact year). Royal Tokaji, located in the village of Mád, about 150 miles northeast of Budapest, is dedicated to crafting a range of traditional, high quality Tokaji wines — from dry to sweet — with a collective of more than 60 local winegrowers, the most famous being Essencia, a rare and exquisite wine customarily served from a crystal spoon.
