Antinori nel Chianti Classico
A Symbol of the Family's Bond to its ancestral land

A Symbol of the Family's Bond to its ancestral land

A story that began in 1385. A historical link with the Chianti Classico region. A place where tradition and innovation coexist in perfect harmony. A winery that reveals the past, present and future of the Antinori family.

The Past, Present and Future of the Antinori Family

The Past, Present and Future of the Antinori Family

The winery was inaugurated in October 2012 affirming the historical bond between the Antinori family and their ancestral territory. The winery was built entirely with locally sourced materials, respectful of the surrounding environment and the Tuscan landscape. It represents an important milestone in the history of the Antinori family. For the first time in 26 generations, the Antinori’s inaugurated a new winery designed to welcome wine enthusiasts inviting them to come into direct contact with their production philosophy based on passion, patience and the continual pursuit of high quality.

The winery overlooks the countryside from a terrace surrounded by vineyards planted with Chianti Classico’s most typical grape, Sangiovese, together with other varieties that were historically planted nearby: Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo, Colorino, Malvasia Nera, and Mammolo. A small area is dedicated to international vines, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

A Sacred Place of Silence

A Sacred Place of Silence

The winery was designed for gravity flow vinification and to guarantee ideal climatic conditions for wine production and aging by using completely natural elements. Marco Casamonti, Antinori nel Chianti Classico’s architect stated: “It is a sacred place of silence, a temple dedicated to the ancient rituals of winemaking, but at the same time it is a production facility that must meet specific quality standards.”

Innovative Architecture

Innovative Architecture

Designed to have a low environmental impact and maximum energy savings, the winery is an unusual and fascinating structure. Practically invisible to the eye, the winery’s façade appears as two elegant horizontal cuts in the Tuscan landscape and its most spectacular feature is the impressive spiral staircase that connects the building’s three levels. The Antinori nel Chianti Classico winery is part of Toscana Wine Architecture, an association that unites unique and original wineries designed by famous contemporary architects.

Vintners and the Fine Arts

Vintners and the Fine Arts

For over six hundred years, the Antinori family has linked their name to excellence in the art of winemaking and as a passionate patron of the fine arts. Marchesi Antinori have often entrusted the important task of documenting their family’s values and history to the fine arts. The family crest is a masterpiece designed by Florentine sculptor and ceramic artist Giovanni della Robbia at the beginning of the 1500’s. The family’s two passions are expressed and promoted by the Accademia Antinori in the field of classical art and traditions and by the Antinori Art Project, a new initiative that focuses on contemporary art, established immediately following completion of the new winery Antinori nel Chianti Classico.

Accademia Antinori

Accademia Antinori

The Accademia Antinori was created to increase appreciation and celebrate all forms of art related to the Tuscan territory and winemaking traditions. A patrimony that the family wishes to preserve, promote and exhibit. The Accademia collects, protects and preserves artwork connected to Tuscan traditions. Their continual research and dedicated studies have led to art restoration projects, the publication of catalogues and art books as well as organizing art exhibitions and events open to the public.

Antinori Art Project

Antinori Art Project

The Antinori Art Project was founded in 2012 at the same time as the inauguration of the new winery Antinori nel Chianti Classico. The idea was to create a project that continued the family’s art collecting traditions but with a new objective: to focus on contemporary art and artists. The futuristic architecture of the new winery is an ideal venue to satisfy visitors who are seeking fine wine tasting and sensory experiences. The Antinori Art Project is therefore a platform for contemporary art exhibitions and installations, organized by well-known curators, that unites under one special program annual site-specific commissions realized by artists recognized in the national and international contemporary art scene as well as temporary exhibits and seminars organized in collaboration with the various museums and foundations.
