More information on wine critics and ratings

Aromas of vanilla, chocolate and coffee. Strikingly weighty structure expressed in well-rounded and balanced mouthfeel.

A very lingering sweet flavour with hints of blackberries and plums.

History of Antinori In 1385, the Antinori family became part of the wine business when Giovanni di Piero Antinori joined the Florentine Vintner's Guild. Since 1966, Marchese Piero Antinori, son of Marchese Niccolò, has run the company with his daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, also playing an active role. For more than 26 generations now, Antinori's philosophy has been based on the combination of both tradition and innovation: to preserve Italy's enological… Read more

James Suckling (JS) : 95 Points (2017)
A linear, nervy red with black-cherry, milk-chocolate and walnut aromas and flavors. It’s medium-to full-bodied with a racy finish. Drink or hold.

Robert Parker (RP) : 93 Points (2017)
The Marchesi Antinori 2017 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Badia a Passignano reveals the soft and generous side of this vintage with ripe aromas of blackberry, plum, spice, sweet tobacco and campfire ash. The wine is giving and rich to all the senses and it ends with softly integrated tannins and a fleshy, fruit-forward style. Serve it with a platter of real Tuscan rosemary schiacciata with slices of culatello.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 92 Points (2017)
Aromas of camphor, cassis, scorched earth and violet form the nose of this medium-bodied red. Made with Sangiovese, the smooth palate offers dried Marasca cherry, coconut, vanilla and thyme alongside fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2025.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 94 Points (2016)
This wine shows a richer side of the 2016 vintage, with dense flavors of black cherry and dried currant layered with notes of braised fennel and cacao gained during aging in barrels (mostly Hungarian oak). For all of its dark flavors and dense texture, the wine remains lively and balanced, brightened by scents of lavender, menthol, basil and thyme. The flavors speak deeply of Tuscany, though with a modern accent.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 94 Points (2016)
A lush, round version, featuring milk chocolate hints and cherry, plum, almond and earth flavors. Dense, with dusty tannins. The vibrant acidity keeps all the elements defined on the lingering aftertaste. Best from 2023 through 2037.

Decanter (DCT) : 93 Points (2015)
Antinori's Badia a Passignano estate is located in the commune of San Casciano Val di Pesa, just 3 kilometres south of Tenuta Tignanello. It boasts predominately calcareous soil and is planted with clones selected from Tignanello's vineyards. Rich fruit references the warm summer but it's girdled by sleek, polished tannins. Currently swathed in heady spice and balsamic herbs, this needs another year to reveal the full spectrum of its nuances and will give plenty of drinking pleasure for at least a decade after that.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 94 Points (2013)
The 2013 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Badia a Passignano is remarkable wine in many ways. For starters, the 2013 is the first vintage of the Badia a Passignano done entirely in cask and in a more refined style than was the norm in the past, when this wine was rather bombastic. Outrageously beautiful, vivid and voluptuous, the wine is dark and enveloping, with tons of character and remarkable finesse. To be sure, this site will always produce ample, broad wines, but the 2013 is also incredibly elegant. (AG) (1/2018)

Il Matarocchio was inspired by the desire to create, at the Guado al Tasso estate, a wine that was the maximum expression both of a single grape variety and a single vineyard plot. Il Matarocchio was born precisely from one of these sites and is a wine of great elegance and depth, one which springs exclusively from its source of origin and from a remarkable vintage.

Cont’Ugo is produced entirely with Merlot as a new interpretation of the Bolgheri territory. The vineyards grow at an altitude that varies between 45 and 60 meters (147/196 feet) above sea level on clay-loam soils that are of alluvial origin that give the wine deep complex notes while preserving the fragrance and freshness typical of Merlot berries.
