More information on wine critics and ratings

The first vintage of Vermentino was 1996. The inspiration behind this wine was the desire to reintroduce one of the indigenous varieties from this part of the Tyrrhenian coast, recognized and appreciated since the 1990’s for its aromatic qualities. Bolgheri’s microclimate is particularly favorable for Vermentino production due to both the territory’s orientation and proximity to the sea which gives the wine pronounced mineral notes, freshness and aromatic qualities.

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

Decanter (DCT) : 91 Points (2016)
A versatile wine that is fragrant and expressive. Ripe peachy fruit and a clean aftertaste. There is a zesty edge, a touch of oiliness and crunchy acidity to finish. Drinking Window 2018 - 2021

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 90 Points (2016)
Cool nights near harvest enhanced this wine’s aromatic freshness, with scents of white blossoms and citrus peel leading into flavors of white grapefruit, lemongrass, and lavender honey. It feels pretty and poised, offering ripe fruit flavors without sweetness, with a clean sweep of acidity that carries a note of pink sea salt on the finish.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 88 Points (2014)
A fruity style, offering peach, apricot, melon and floral aromas and flavors. Picks up a hint of white pepper on the juicy finish. Drink now through 2018.

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 16 Points (2014)
Tasted April 2015 - Impressive fruit weight with a slightly reductive whiff. Excellent balance and more serious than many Vermentinos.

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.
