Marchesi Antinori is one of Italy’s most famous wineries. Indeed, the Antinori family has been making wine for over six hundred years, since Giovanni di Piero Antinori became part of the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri in 1385. Not ones to be stuck in the past, they were also right there at the birth of the “Super Tuscan” with their own Tignanello. In fact, they continually try to be inventive in seeking out partnerships with wineries from other countries and hemispheres, as well as experimentation in the vineyards and cellars, trying different clones, growing techniques, fermentation methods, traditional and modern vinification and aging methods.
Today Marchese Piero Antinori is director of the company, assisted by his three daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, all of whom are personally involved in the business. Join us as Allesia Antinori visits in the studio to describe what it’s like to have both the tradition and responsibility of 26 generations to follow in the Tuscany region of Italy.
