RANKING

Antinori in Chianti Classico is the most beautiful winery in the world

In the “top 100” Ferrari, Donnafugata, Ceretto, Gaja, Villa Sandi, Cavalier Pepe, Marchesi di Barolo and Tenuta San Leonardo

Italy is the most beautiful country in the world. For its cities of art, and for its landscapes, often designed by vineyards. And now, also for its wineries. Because the monumental and much-visited Antinori winery in Chianti Classico, an architectural masterpiece signed by Marco Casamonti for the Antinori family, which leads one of the most important names in world wine, is No. 1 in the “World’s Best Vineyards 2022”, the ranking of the world's most beautiful wineries, revealed in Mendoza, Argentina, these hours. An absolute triumph for Italy and one of its wine symbols, set in the Chianti Classico area that is one of the most intact and beautiful wine territories in the world.
“It is a result that is very gratifying for us”, Antinori’s CEO Renzo Cotarella comments to WineNews. “It is the result of a lot of hard work, because in this world no one gives you anything and it is better that way, because it helps not to get ahead of yourself. It is an award not only for Antinori, but for the whole of Italy and for Chianti Classico, which gives us great pleasure because we made this winery at a difficult time, such as the financial crisis of 2008, and it is another tangible sign, of the ability of the Antinori family to look long term and beyond time. It is an award that enhances the territory, and a great satisfaction because our roots are in Chianti Classico. And it is recognition for a generation, that of Piero Antinori, who leaves another pearl to the territory, a sign of foresight, attention, and a great deal of patience, just as his ancestors left Palazzo Antinori in Florence”. But Antinori’s triumph, for Italy, is also accompanied by the winery that has climbed the most positions since the 2021 edition, namely Ferrari Trento, leader of Trentodoc, of the Lunelli family, which jumped from No. 61 to No. 11. With a top 50 also featuring another leading Italian winery, namely the Sicilian Donnafugata, led by Antonio and Jose Rallo, a new entry at position No. 45. Thus, there are 9 wineries in all in the 2022 “Top 100”, with Antinori, Ferrari and Donnafugata joining the already announced Ceretto and Gaja, icons of Piedmontese wine, which have risen to positions No. 62 and No. 65, respectively, compared to the 2021 results, and, with new entries of such griffes as Villa Sandi, at No. 70, Tenuta Cavalier Pepe at No. 74, Marchesi di Barolo at No. 90 and Tenuta San Leonardo at No. 97.
A ranking, then, that sees on the podium Spain’s Bodegas de los Herederos by Marqués de Riscal, at No. 2 and Chile’s Montes at No. 3 (while the 2021 winner, Zuccardi Valle de Uco, in Argentina, right in Mendoza, was promoted to the “Hall of Fame” of the World’s Best Vineyard, ed.), which confirms Italy at the top of the wine world, not only for the quality and variety of its production, but also for its widespread beauty, from Trentino Alto Adige to Sicily.
