Winemaker's Notes:

90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and Syrah

Introduced in 1988 with the 1985 vintage, Peppoli Chianti Classico DOCG is the archetypal modern Chianti Classico. In a departure from traditional Chiantis, Peppoli combines the complexity and structure of a well-aged riserva with the fruity fragrance of a young wine.

Intense red fruit aromas with light hints of vanilla and coffee. A well-structured wine with smooth, sweet tannins of nice length with fruity flavors. This wine is made to be enjoyed fairly young, while the fruit is at its fullest expression.

About Antinori:

The Antinori family of Florence, one of the world's oldest and most distinguished wine producers, has lived in Tuscany since the 14th century and celebrated its 625th anniversary as wine makers in 2010. The current company president, Marchese Piero Antinori, believes in the tradition that the primary role of wine is to accompany food and enhance the dining experience. In Florence, the Antinori family has led a "Renaissance" in Italian wine making by combining long traditions, a love of authenticity and a dynamic innovative spirit.
