ANTINORI INVESTS AGAIN IN CHIANTI. THE TUSCAN BRAND HAS FINALIZED THE ACQUISITION OF SAN SANO CASTLE -MORE THAN 80 ACRES OF VINEYARDS IN GAIOLE IN CHIANTI, THE HEART OF THE BLACK ROOSTER TERRITORY, FOR AROUND 15 MILLION EUROS

Antinori is investing again in Chianti Classico. The group led by Piero Antinori and his daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, has finalized the acquisition of San Sano Castle, owned by the Alimenta Spa group - over 80 hectares of vineyards in Gaiole in Chianti, in the heart of Black Rooster territory, in addition to the facilities and the cellar - for an undisclosed fee, but estimated around 15 million euros (one hectare in Chianti Classico at market value is estimated at 130 to 150.000 euro, ed.).
It is a major investment and confirms Antinori’s decision to establish even deeper roots in Chianti Classico, where in 2012 he transferred his headquarters to the splendid winery in Bargino (San Casciano Val di Pesa), increasing the productive potential of the Black Rooster brand (the most recent acquisition totaled more than 200 hectares) that is also produced at the Tignanello, Badia a Passignano and Peppoli estates.

The deal includes a beautiful 19th century building and the winery, “that we will not use to make wine just yet”, Renzo Cotarella, CEO of Antinori told WineNews, “at least not until it has been restored and modernized to our standards. We will immediately use the grapes produced in San Sano for our Chianti Classico Villa Antinori, and it is possible that in the future, when we have analyzed the vineyards and land, we might choose some for a new selection”.
