WINE AND ACQUISITIONS

Antinori still invests in Tuscany, with the Rubbia al Colle winery, in Suvereto

For the historic family landing in Val di Cornia, which enriches the “Tuscan mosaic” between Chianti Classico, Bolgheri, Montalcino, Maremma

The roots are in Tuscany, where wine has been present in the family history since the fourteenth century, but also the future - despite “oenological excursions” of absolute value in Piedmont, in the land of Barolo (with Prunotto), in Umbria (with the prestigious Castello Della Sala), in Franciacorta (Montenisa) and in Puglia (Tormaresca) - passes through the Granducato, through Marchesi Antinori. Top brand of Italian wine in the world and family, the 26th generation, led by Marquis Piero Antinori, and his daughters Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, among the most famous of the Italian wine business by coat of arms, history and economic importance (first private Italian winery by turnover, which exceeds 210 million euros turnover), which, from WineNews rumors, has invested again in Tuscany, in Suvereto, with the purchase of the winery Rubbia al Colle by the family Muratori.
A pioneering company in its own way, with 100 hectares of land of which 73 are planted with Merlot, Cabernet, and Sangiovese, with a modern cellar, built, ante litteram, according to all criteria of environmental sustainability, completely underground and with zero impact on the surrounding environment. In a wine-producing land less famous than others, but of the highest order from the point of view of wine-growing and landscape beauty, in the heart of the Val di Cornia (in the estate’s properties also the Usilio vineyard, the highest cultivated with Sangiovese in the territory, ed), whose rows “speak” with those of the most famous territory of Bolgheri, and where one hectare of vineyard, according to evaluations of WineNews, is estimated at between 80,000 and 100,000 euros.
Another important investment, and act of love, trust and passion, of the Antinori family - which now exceeds 2.780 hectares of vineyards in Italy - in its “Toscana mater”, which adds another jewel to the Tuscan treasure of Antinori, which includes the Tignanello Estate, Badia a Passignano and Pèppoli, in the Chianti Classico area, where the group’s headquarters have been located for some years now, in the futuristic Bargino winery in San Casciano Val di Pesa, entirely “carved” into the hillside and covered with vineyards, passing through Pian delle Vigne, one of the reference names in the land of Brunello di Montalcino, and the Guado al Tasso Estate, one of Bolgheri’s most important brands, passing through Le Mortelle, in the heart of the Maremma overlooking the sea, in Castiglione della Pescaia, and the Monteloro Estate, in the Etruscan Maremma, in Sovana, and La Braccesca, in Monepulciano, in the land of Vino Nobile, and Tenuta Monteloro in the Apennines near Fiesole, just outside Florence, or Tenuta La Farneta, in Sinalunga, Chianti Colli Senesi, a few steps from Siena.
On the other hand, as Marquis Piero Antinori recalls on www.antinori.it, “the ancient roots play an important role in our philosophy, but they have never inhibited our innovative spirit. Our library has many titles, but for us, it is not rich enough. We have a mission that is not entirely accomplished, which pushes us to express the vast potential of our vineyards and to reconcile the new that remains to be discovered with the heritage of Tuscan taste that includes tradition, culture, agriculture, art and literature that in fact represent the identity of the Marchesi Antinori, of which one of the greatest strengths is the fact of being Tuscan, or, if you prefer, our “Tuscan flair”.
