  • Cont’Ugo 2017 offers an intense ruby red color. The nose is imbued by notes of such ripe red fruit as raspberries and cherries along with sensations of sweet spices. On the palate, the firm tannic texture, silky and flowing, is well supported by a pleasurable freshness. Cont’Ugo is a balanced wine with a pleasurable persistence and length and much drinking pleasure.
  • The Antinori family is one of the most authentic and historical names of the Italian wine industry. This family has been making elegant and heritage-rich wines for over six centuries now. Giovanni di Piero Antinori became a member of the Florentine Winemakers’ Guild in 1385, and his family has been making beautiful wines, since then. Today, though the estate is managed by the 26th generation Antinori family member, you will be thrilled to notice that the historic winemaking practices are carried on with full respect and passion here.

    The details of the family vineyards are as follows:

    Tenuta Tignanello – 130 hectares are under the vine here. You can find two of the finest parcels of vineyards, Tignanello and Solaia here. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon & Cabernet Franc, and small lots of Malvasia & Trebbiano are grown here.

    Badia A Passignano – 65 hectares are under the vine here. Vineyards are located at a height of 250 to 350m above sea level with Sangiovese vines, mostly.

    Peppoli – 50 hectares are under the vine here. You can find big parcels of Sangiovese vines and small lots of Merlot, Syrah and Malvasia in this microclimate-filled region.

    Antinori in the Chianti Classico – A new and sophisticated winery, constructed using the local materials, was established in this estate during 2012. Apart from Sangiovese, small parcels of indigenous grapes, such as Canaiolo, Colorino, Malvasia Nera and Mammolo are found here.
