About Marchesi Antinori Villa Antinori

While most of the Antinori family’s estates are firmly anchored in a specific wine region or subregion, its Villa Antinori project... represents an idea: the family’s deep roots in Toscana, as interpreted by patriarch Niccolò Antinori. In 1928, Niccolò wanted to make a red wine that symbolized his connection to Toscana, and Villa Antinori was born; a white followed four years later. Today, the Antinori family draws from its various estates in Chianti Classico — including its Tignanello, Solaia, Badia a Passignano, and Monteloro holdings — to make just four Villa Antinori bottlings: the estate’s captivating Rosso IGT and its delightful Bianco IGT, as well as a superb Chianti Classico and a Pinot Bianco. The labels of these Villa Antinori bottles depict Villa del Cigliano, the family’s sixteenth-century home situated in San Casciano in the gently rolling hills north of Florence. More than a home, Villa del Cigliano embodies the Antinori family’s ancient connection to winemaking because it’s the place where the family took its first steps into crafting the wines that have made the Antinori family the global force it is today.

Marchesi Antinori Badia a Passignano Chianti Classico Gran Selezione 2020 750ml

Badia a Passignano

One of the Antinori family of estates, Badia a Passignano sits on just over 550 acres in the heart of Chianti Classico, in Sambuca Val di Pesa, a few miles... south of Antinori's Tignanello estate. As you'd expect from the Antinori family, this Chianti estate is a superb site for growing Sangiovese, Toscana's most emblematic grape, and making Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, the crème de la crème of Chianti’s wines. Like a fairytale fortress in the heart of Chianti Classico, Badia a Passignano's stone walls rise out of a thicket of cypress trees, and this former abbey, originally built in 395, has played home to the Vallombrosian order, an arm of the Benedictine monks, for centuries — in fact, the Vallombrosian monks, who specialize in viniculture and forestry, continue to live on the premises. In 1987, the Antinori family bought the land surrounding the abbey, and the Antinori family uses the abbey’s ancient cellars to age its Chianti Classico Gran Selezione.

About Marchesi Antinori Le Mortelle

Located on the Maremma Coast near the family's Guado al Tasso estate in Bolgheri, Le Mortelle was once part of a larger estate called La... Badiola, created in the nineteenth century when the Duchy drained the marshy areas around Grosseto. The Antinori family purchased Le Mortelle in 1999, and the estate’s name, which comes from the region’s plentiful wild myrrh, signals the family’s green commitment. Le Mortelle isn’t merely certified organic — it also sports a state-of-the-art cellar facility constructed with natural materials and erected under the earth. Built into the side of a hill, Le Mortelle’s cantina is barely visible, but its three-story structure allows for gravity to move the wine from pressing to fermentation to aging barrels, which reduces energy and treats the wine with tender loving care. Le Mortelle occupies almost 670 acres, with 420 acres under vine, and it boasts a variety of soils that range from sandy and loamy with clay and silica to rocky, pebbly, and mineral-rich. While Le Mortelle’s range of wines is small, the impact is great, and it’s only a matter of time before this Antinori estate achieves the renown it deserves.
