Wine Tasting at Antinori in the Chianti
Nestled in the Chianti landscape, about 45 minutes by car from Florence, the Cantina Antinori in the Chianti Classico is a high energy-saving structure overlooking the surrounding countryside where Sangiovese grapes are grown. Here it is possible to experience delights of the senses by enjoying an itinerary that is architectural, gustatory and emotional at the same time. Various tasting itineraries are available: from the simpler one, for those approaching the world of Marchesi Antinori to the more complete one, which includes a tasting of seven wines and lunch at the “Rinuccio 1180” restaurant, located on the roof of the Cantina. To complete the visit, it is possible to visit the “Futuro Antico” space, where a part of the family collection is exhibited. The Antinori Family has been dedicated to producing wines for more than six hundred years, managing the activity with innovative choices, though still respecting traditions and the territory.
