Antinori Chianti Classico Peppoli 2011 750ML    
Sku: 34201

The first vintage of Peppoli was in 1985. It is complex and well-structured yet fruity and aromatic, a style made possible by the unique microclimate. The vineyards are planted in a particularly well-aspected valley on soil rich in minerals, ideal for the cultivation of vigorous, fruity Sangiovese grapes. 55 of the 100-hectare Peppoli estate in the heart of Chianti Classico are planted with vineyards.

During the harvest the grapes from the Peppoli estate in Chianti Classico were carefully selected and the grape varieties were fermented separately to obtain the best from each. After destemming and crushing the Sangiovese grapes macerated in stainless steel vats for about 10 days. For the Merlot and Syrah the maceration process was managed with the aim of preserving the fruity aromas. Fermentation took place at a maximum temperature of 28C and was followed by malolactic fermentation before the winter. Once the Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah were blended the wine was placed in 55hl Slavonian oak barrels (and 10% in American oak barriques) for 9 months. We started using American barriques - although in small quantities - to complete the aromatic range of Peppoli. Ageing in larger barrels aims instead to preserve the fruity aromas from fermentation, and sweeten the tannins. After ageing the wine was bottled and then further aged in the bottles before release.

Tasting notes
The wine is ruby red in color with aromas of ripe red fruit and well amalgamated notes of vanilla and coffee. The palate enjoys a notable support from the acidity, which maintains a pleasurable freshness and persistence of flavor along with soft and sweet tannins which guarantee excellent drinkability.
