MIXED CASE OF 5.5 BOTTLES
Marchese Antinori Cuvée Royale Brut NV
Antinori - Franciacorta DOCG, Lombardy
Aromas of white peaches, bread crusts and biscuit - the notable balance and liveliness are typical of this sparkler which is Italy’s answer to a super-premium Champagne.
2019 Bramito della Sala
Antinori - Castello della Sala, Umbria
A second wine to the famous Cervaro. Bramito della Sala is produced from the vineyards surrounding the medieval castle at Castello della Sala. One variety that thrives in this terroir is Chardonnay - the vineyards are on soils rich in fossil deposits with veins of clay that give the wine minerality and elegance.
2018 Il Bruciato
Antinori - Guado al Tasso, Bolgheri Superiore
The second wine from the legendary Guado al Tasso estate - a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah - that shows amazing depth and complexity with aromas of forest fruits, flowers, terracotta, leather, tobacco and sweet spices which continue on the palate with a long, satisfying finish.
Antinori – Le Mortelle, Maremma
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc with ripe, succulent red berries and juicy black fruits on the palate against a backdrop of peppery spices, black liquorice and violet petals. Fine grained tannins with notes of chocolate and fruit make for an extended, satisfying finish.
2016 Chianti Classico Riserva
Antinori – Tenuta Tignanello, Tuscany
Also known as the Baby Tignanello, it shows elegance and finesse marked by aromas of red fruit and liquorice. The palate is soft and supple with solid and perceptible tannins, while the acidity gives the wine a unique vibrancy. The finish and aftertaste are both long and focused.
2017 Tignanello (half bottle)
Antinori - Tenuta Tignanello, Tuscany
The bottle that changed Italian wine forever, Tignanello is as modern and innovative as its first vintage many decades ago. Soft blackberry and cherry is backed up by balanced notes of spice, leather and toasted espresso. Those rich oak tones do a wonderful job of holding up the wine's natural richness and velvety smoothness.
